Take a scroll through @nursehadley on TikTok and you’ll find videos on the afterlife, grief, end-of-life planning, family dynamics, bedside manner and advice to current nursing students. (You can also find Vlahos on Instagram at @nurse.hadley.)

Vlahos has worked as a registered nurse for eight years, six of those being in hospice. Beyond social media, Vlahos released her New York Times-bestselling debut memoir last summer. Much like her content, The In-Between: Unforgettable Encounters During Life’s Final Moments shares stories of her experiences with patients, rendered with empathy and care.

Vlahos lives with her husband and three children outside of New Orleans. In many ways, death has been a part of her life since childhood; her grandparents were licensed embalmers and funeral directors.

She was raised in a strict religious household, where she began questioning her beliefs after the death of a friend in high school. When she got pregnant at age 19, she went into nursing to support herself and son. Eventually, she fell in love with hospice care.

“Vlahos’s compassionate, beautifully written book contains profound wisdom. It is for anyone with an open heart who loves a good story and anyone who fears but would like to better understand hospice and the end of life,” writes author Katy Butler, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Dying Well.

We’re sure that Vlahos will bring that same wisdom to the Fort Thomas Branch. A book signing will follow the talk. For more info on Nurse Hadley, visit prhspeakers.com.
