I am a Life Cycle Officiant and ordained minister. I received my Celebrancy diploma from the Celebrant Foundation and Institute in 2010. The Celebrant Foundation and Institute is a non-profict educational organization dedicated to training the highest quality Celebrants. Celebrants are a new kind of officiant, one who provides personalized ceremonies to individuals, couples, families and communities, no matter what their beliefs. The goal is always to reflect the clients beliefs,values, and traditions; the Celebrant’s own views are immaterial in this process.
I am highly trained in the art of ritual, ceremony, world and faith traditions, ceremonial writing, public speaking and presentation. I perform a wide variety of ceremonies: Marriage, commitment ceremonies, vow-renewal, funerals, memorials, baby blessings, and end of life pet ceremonies.
I am an ordained minister from the Universal Brotherhood Movement. I honor all religious and spiritual traditions. My ministry follows the path of service and sharing in the great moment of humans lives-in birth, sickness, marriage and death, whether of crises or of celebration to bring comfort and a blessing.
I have always worked in areas through my sensitivity toward the public needs and specifically through relating to the general public on a nurturing, protective level. My life changing vocation as a celebrant came after practicing and teaching yoga and meditation for 35 years. I owned and managed a yoga studio from 2002 – 2010 giving me a strong background in business.
I bring a lifetime of working well with others through my sense of calm and strong ability to organize. I bring the spirit and passion of artistic collaboration to my vocation as a Life Cycle Celebrant and Minister. I am a trusted guide with whom you can communicate your wishes and create memories worth cherishing.
