Suzette Mikita

I was born and raised in Connecticut. I spent my childhood amongst many activities including camping, babysitting, skiing, rollerskating and ice skating, reading every book I could get my hands on, and being a candy striper where I developed my love for nursing.

I moved to South Florida where I became a nurse in 2002. I have been involved in end of life care for approximately 19 years. I obtained my Palliative Care Resource Nurse certification in 2015. I also contributed greatly to starting the Palliative Care Steering Committee at Bayfront St. Petersburg Hospital in 2016 and I became a very active member of the Advent Health Tampa Hospital Palliative Care Steering Committee in 2018.

It is my sole purpose and calling to assist people in the traversing of the vastly complex end of life world. I look forward to rising to the challenge!

I am very enthusiastic about living a meaningful life and allowing my Spirit to move forward. I view death as a natural process to release the Spirit from the physical body. I’ve had the opportunity to hold vigil space and be at the bedside of several loved-ones who have transitioned. Therefore, it would be an honor for me to accompany you and your family on this journey. I want to provide information, support, and assistance before, during, and after your loved-one’s end of life experience. Together, we can plan and ensure the most sacred and peaceful final moments.
