An American Version of Swedish Death Cleaning
An American Version of Swedish Death Cleaning
Using real-life examples & personal photographs, Intentional Living Coach Jeanne Roppolo demonstrates her unique perspective on the gentle art of Swedish Death Cleaning.
When you rid yourself of clutter; body, mind & spirit, you allow positive experiences to flow into this vacated space.

Do you have a dream?  Do you need a little positive reinforcement?

Do you yearn to jump out of your comfort zone?  Need to face your fears?

Are you bored with your present situation?  In a rut?  Want to believe? 

Want to open your mind to the possibilities of what could be?

Through my books, artifacts, props and lively audience discussion, I tell the captivating tale of how I, as a traditional young wife and mother, without money or a college degree, was placed onto a strange and unforeseen path.


That long, winding road, with its twists and turns, detours and stops, led me, at age 57, to Antarctica. Discover how that work experience led me to you.


Through the telling of my unconventional story you may see the opportunities and transformative experiences that may be hidden in your everyday life.


Stops on my journey through life:

Alaska, Antarctica, Australia, China, Hawaii, Jamaica, Mongolia, Russia, Siberia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands of Hao, Kamaka, Moorea, Tahiti, and Mangareva.

Facebook: Due to the fact that I have been hacked so many times & Facebook chooses to do nothing about it, I will no longer be posting on my personal or business pages. All current events can be found on this web site.

March 2020: Comments from a few second-graders and teachers

Dear Grandma Roppolo, Thank you for coming to our school. I learned a crevasse is a crack in the ice. I didn't know galley meant kitchen. An interesting fact was you forgot to return Flat Stanley. I really liked it when you showed us that cool video of the Northern Lights. I would not like to go Antarctica because I would miss my mom and dad.

~Sincerely, Xander

Dear Grandma Roppolo, Thank you for the bookmark. I love it. I learned that a skua bird can attack. I didn't know that polar bears lived in the Arctic. I really liked it when I got to take a picture with you. An interesting fact was you got a crystal from an active volcano. I would like to go to Antarctica because I would like to see a penguin.

~Sincerely, Jessa

Dear Grandma Roppolo, Thank you for coming to our school. I learned that you have to go to CDC to get your warm clothes. I didn't know that the bunny boots were so heavy. An interesting fact was your glasses saved your eye. I really liked it when you showed us the penguins at the airport. I would like to go to Antarctica because I would like to be a janitor or a scientist.

~Sincerely, Melanie

Will your memorable encounter with this energetic, entertaining and inspiring storyteller change your perspective on life?  ABSOLUTELY

Great presentation, very inspiring-money isn't everything-it's about the experience! Looking forward to the memoir in November. I liked the 'conversation' idea rather than just a lecture.
