Education Sessions

Each year Tobin Brothers run a series of Free Education Sessions for Healthcare Workers. These are facilitated by Samantha Rennie - Community Education Officer for Tobin Brothers Funerals, Jennifer Burge - Senior Embalmer &  Educator and
​Sofiya Bouabdullah - Embalmer.

Samantha Rennie has a Bachelor of Education in Art and a Graduate Diploma in Nursing. She has worked for over 30 years in nursing, focusing on the areas of education, oncology and critical care and has also received training in holistic therapies. Samantha’s training as an educator and therapist means that she gently draws on participants own wisdom and experience to educate and heal in a caring, supportive and fun environment.

Jennifer Burge is a Senior Embalmer and Educator for Tobin Brothers Funerals with over 20 years’ experience in the embalming industry.

In these education sessions, Jennifer shares her experience and wisdom with Healthcare Professionals around the importance of how we care for our deceased.

Sofiya Bouabdullah is an Embalmer and Educator for Tobin Brothers Funerals.

With a background in Aged and Disability care she took the path from caring for the living to caring for the deceased. Using her experience in both fields, Sofiya talks about the commonalities/differences and how together we can work towards mutually beneficial outcomes.
