I am a Life-Cycle Celebrant®, specifically trained and experienced to perform weddings, memorials and other ceremonies to honor the milestones of your life.


I honor all philosophies, beliefs and traditions - secular, spiritual, non-spiritual, and interfaith. With you, I will create a beautiful ceremony that will respect and reflect your values, style and your life. We can be as unique, creative, formal or informal as you wish. I will listen to you, make suggestions and together we will create the perfect ceremony for you or your family.


Your Wedding Day, Elopement, Vow Renewal, Family Event, Funeral or Memorial will have an important significance in that you create a personalized ceremony reflecting who you are as individuals: honoring a life well-lived, welcoming a new baby or marking any and all family ceremonies as a perfect milestone. Your ceremony should be a true reflection of your wishes or a bond in honoring someone in your life. 


I will help you express this important day with a personalized ceremony for you or your family member. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your special wishes for your ceremony, whatever it may be and it would be my honor and pleasure to create and share your personal story with you.
