Susan Ducharme Hoben

Susan Ducharme Hoben is an award-winning author of Dying Well: Our Journey of Love and Loss and renowned advocate for choosing the path of a peaceful end-of-life. Her insights challenge and inspire us to fundamentally shift our perspective on death. She is a sought-after media expert and has appeared on national media outlets, including NBC and ABC, and Sirius XM/Doctor Radio. As someone who has lived the end-of-life experience she is advocating, she brings an important and missing perspective to the growing national dialog about dying. When her husband Bruce decided to stop treatment for his terminal illness, he and his family embraced his end-of-life and assumed responsibility for achieving a celebratory, peaceful, and intimate conclusion.  She shows us what is possible and demonstrates the value not just to the person who is dying but to those left behind. Susan Ducharme Hoben is a former executive consultant with IBM’s Strategy and Change Consulting practice. She put her mathematics degree from Cornell University and graduate studies in Computer and Information Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology to good use in a thirty-five-year career in information technology that began with systems engineering with IBM and ended with consulting. Upon retirement, she founded a travel journal about luxury barging in Europe. Susan lives in Connecticut on ancestral land, and frequently visits her six granddaughters (and their parents) in Silver Spring, Maryland, and Nashville, Tennessee. She celebrates life every day, never turning down an invitation, especially if it involves travel or dancing. Since retirement, in addition to regular sailing trips in the British Virgin Islands and barging trips in France, she seeks to expand her horizons by exploring a new destination each year, whether on safari in Africa, trekking the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, sailing the Gulf of Thailand, or striking a yoga pose on the mountain peak that rises 850 feet above Machu Picchu.
