Tobin Brothers Funerals Education Sessions

Education Sessions

Each year Tobin Brothers run a series of Free Education Sessions for Healthcare Professionals. These are  primarily facilitated by Samantha Rennie - Community Outreach Manager for Tobin Brothers Funerals and Senior Embalmer Jennifer Burge.

Samantha has a Bachelor of Education in Art and a Graduate Diploma in Nursing. She has worked for over 20 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.

Please note that these education sessions are for people working in Healthcare only.
