I have a passion for creating ceremonies that are authentic and meaningful and fit with where people are at. My interest in becoming a wedding celebrant started in 2005 after my husband and I received very positive feedback about our own wedding ceremony: a joyful occasion which we designed and created ourselves. As a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister, I am committed to finding ways that allow you to express and connect with what you believe most deeply, at the times you when need it most.
To the task of Wedding Celebrant and Funeral Celebrant, I bring over 20 years of experience of gathering people to create innovative celebrations together, through my work in young adult and family ministry. I have studied theology, economics, and nonprofit management, and have worked in the nonprofit sector for over 15 years in leadership roles, including as manager of an Intercultural Centre, and as a lecturer in nonprofit economics. I also bring a diploma in speech and drama, and a love of creating and holding a space for people to feel connected.
And perhaps most important of all, I bring my experience of being a wife, a mum, a daughter, a sister and a best friend: of the highs and lows of life and what can truly help to mark them.
