Floyd D. Smith | Chief Financial Officer
B.S. – Biology – Concord University, Athens WV
Floyd brings over 30 years of experience in providing professional services to high-growth organizations, with a focus on forecasting, business planning, project management, and operations. He owned his own office furniture installation and design company in South Florida. He works closely with large municipal governments and entrepreneurial companies across multiple areas within commercial interior design, planning and installation. Floyd completed his end-of-life doula training through Stardust Meadow & Village Deathcare in Craftsbury Common, Vermont. Since a child, he has had a long term interest in mysticism surrounding end-of-life as a portal to transformation. He feels called to this work based on his own experiences with caring for his brother who is a Veteran with a traumatic brain injury who has experienced a moral injury and the deaths of loved ones. Floyd believes his mission in life is simple; he’s a listening ear for the living and the dying, a companion as well as a friend to the caregiver and the dying because every person deserves an end of life experience that is peaceful and meaningful.
Floyd loves being a part of the Charlotte community and spends as much time as possible outdoors – hiking, riding his Indian motorcycle, camping, traveling – with his wife and spending time with his grandchildren. He is also an avid gardener and landscaper.
