Mealer Funeral Director How long have you been in the funeral profession? 8 years as a Funeral Director/Embalmer/Cremationist, though this was a culmination of 5 years of schooling with 2 years of apprenticeships. How did you know that the funeral industry was your career path? I have been on the other side of the table in experiencing my own loss.

Mostly Customer Service positions, i.e. Restaurants and grocery stores. What is your educational background? I have an Associates in General Studies and an Associates in Applied Science. I am a Licensed Funeral Director, Embalmer and Cremationist with the state of Arizona. What is your favorite part of your job? Seeing the families wishes come to fruition. The appreciation from the family that we were able to take the emotional burden and stress away from them so they can focus on their loved one. How long have you been in the area? I have been in Colorado Springs for a little over a 21/2 years. Background: My name is Taylor Mealer and I am a Funeral Director. I have been with SCI for 8 years. I am very detail, oriented, multitasker and a bit obsessive compulsive at times. Regardless of that my personality is perfectly suited for a funeral background due to the sensitive nature of our business. I am able to always fulfill my family’s wishes with whatever it takes.

Lisa Carter ~Funeral Director~ I have had the pleasure of working for SCI since 2008. My journey started in Pueblo, Colorado at George McCarthy funeral home as a receptionist. It was in the very beginning of my career with Southern Corporation International, otherwise known as Dignity Memorial, I realized that the passion I felt with helping families gave me tremendous gratification. I knew this is where I wanted to grow as an individual. Over the last several years I was fortunate to have worked at various Dignity Memorial locations’ across the United States. It was then that I knew to full-fill my dreams I needed to take the final step and become a funeral director. I enrolled in classes and took the necessary steps. What a gratifying job. To be able to assist those in need and to be there at their most difficult time. Sometimes during the process the families are lost in a moment and that’s when I tell them “It’s alright. I will take care of you.” I am happy to say that I now call Swan Law Funeral Directors home.
