Em Reinl

NOR Operator

Em (they/them) is thrilled to be a part of the NOR team. Their work at Recompose aligns with their interests in sustainability and death care by returning our bodies back to the earth. Additionally, they’re feeling honored to work along side passionate and creative people.

Born and raised in Sacramento, California, Em moved out to the Pacific Northwest to get their bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Spanish from Seattle University. They’ve previously worked as a landscaper, an in-home care provider, and as an early childhood and environmental educator.

They are a caretaker by nature and find a home in knowing that they have the opportunity to provide care and support for our deceased loved ones. In their free time, they are an artist, helicopter plant parent aka gardener, community organizer, amateur birder, and a dog uncle to a sweet pitbull, Roo. Their values are based in the abolition of all oppressive structures. They are always dreaming of ways to create alternatives in order to build a world in which we are all free.
