Elizabeth Fournier has dedicated her career to helping individuals access sustainable, meaningful and affordable burials and funerals. She was called to this work at the tender age of 13 after many family deaths. Elizabeth owns and operates Cornerstone Funeral Service out of a repurposed goat barn in Boring, Oregon, where she uses traditional burial practices that are kinder to humans and the Earth. In addition to her steadfast work as a funeral director, Elizabeth wrote The Green Burial Guidebook, gave a TEDx talk called, "Going Green: The Last Act of Environmental Volunteerism,” and is the voice of the autopsy exhibit in the forensic wing at the United States National Museum of Medicine.
