This week we speak with Co-Founder & CEO of GatheringUs, Noha Waibsnaider. Based on her own experiences of organizing memorials and funerals as part of a large family, Noha was determined to help other families honor their loved ones in a way that was easy and convenient. With the onset of COVID-19, and the global travel restrictions set in its wake, the need for alternative and virtual gathering options in times of mourning is even more essential.
During our conversation, we discuss the initial inspiration behind GatheringUs, the way that the platform has grown and evolved to meet clients' needs, and the lessons Noha has learned while helping grieving families during such unprecedented times.
