Meet Science Care: Kaylan Goodwin

Founded in 2000, Science Care is the leading body donation authority in the world, and we set the industry standard that families have come to trust. We are proud of our commitment to the highest levels of safety and quality.

Our work would not be possible without the team that works tirelessly to ensure we honor donors’ desire to leave a lasting legacy. In this series, we will introduce you to our team so you can get to know the passion that drives us.

Kaylan Goodwin, Science Care’s Vice President of Marketing, was born and raised in Missouri. As a child, she was most frequently found with a pile of books to keep her company. Her passion for communication started early.

“From a young age, reading and writing have brought me immense joy,” Kaylan said. “I love the sensation of being completely absorbed in a story. Our words can be powerful when used well.”

That interest sparked a career after Kaylan graduated with a degree in Communications and began work spanning across numerous industries. Her career launched in Oklahoma, telling the stories of a dental non-profit. From there, Kaylan learned from some of the best in the music industry, supported an education non-profit, and finally found her way to the death care industry.

Prior to joining Science Care, Kaylan led a team responsible for marketing on behalf of funeral homes across the country. During those years, her passion for marketing helped shine a light on the best end-of-life service providers in communities across the United States. Her guidance aided families facing the loss of a loved one in finding ethical, reputable professionals to support them during a time of great loss.

“If there is one certainty we can all count on, it is that life will inevitably end,” Kaylan said.

“It’s an honor to help raise awareness and open doors for conversations around respectful, ethical end-of-life options.”  

In her role with Science Care, Kaylan oversees marketing and outreach efforts to build awareness for body donation. The stigma surrounding death can complicate important conversations, but ongoing education can help people navigate the process.

“I am so grateful to be part of a team focused on making a difference for generations to come,” Kaylan said. “The landscape of medical research and advancements is changing every day, and it wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our body donors and the work our team does to honor those donations.”

When she’s not helping spread the word about the impact of body donation, Kaylan usually with her husband, five-year-old son or their close friends.  

“My happy places include having my wrists deep in soil tending to my garden, cooking something new in the kitchen, or teaching myself how to do something I’ve never done before,” said Kaylan.
