Arianna RuleHow long have you worked in funeral service?

Six years.

Why did you begin working in funeral service?

It is something I’ve had in mind since I was in high school, but I still wanted to get my bachelor’s degree just in case it didn’t work out.

What is the most rewarding part of your occupation?

The hugs or the genuine thank you’s from families telling me I made it easier for them.

What are your professional goals?

I just want to be a well rounded funeral director. I always want to learn and adapt as the years go on and be the best version of myself I can be.

What are you proud of that you have achieved so far during your career in funeral service?

I completed the certified pre-planning consultant program and became chair of OGR’s Young Professionals Council.

What are some important/notable trends that you have noticed in funeral service?

More online/digital arrangements and streaming or recording services. Most of that was due to the pandemic but I can see it continuing just for pure convenience.

How do you spend your time outside of work? Is there anything in particular that you enjoy doing?

I enjoy being outside on warm and sunny days, whether that is going to the beach in the summer or hanging out in the backyard. I enjoy taking my dog on walks and a good manicure/pedicure.

What are three of your personal goals?

  1. Making myself a priority and making sure I don’t get burnt out. Focusing on my health, making sure I work out regularly and eat healthy.
  2. Travel, both within the country and internationally.
  3. Create multiple sources of income.

Who or what inspires you?

I’m inspired by people who do whatever they have to do in order to fulfill their dreams.

What is your favorite phone app?

Pinterest. It can distract me for hours.

What is one thing your peers would be surprised to know about you?

I enjoy luxury sports cars.

What is one thing that you think is just “golden,” wonderful or exciting?

Seeing animals in their natural habitat, puppies and thunderstorms.

What do you value most about OGR?

The connections with like-minded colleagues. The organization as a whole tries to ‘follow the Golden Rule.’

What other words do you try to live by?

If you’re truly good at what you do, don’t worry about anyone else.
