As a certified celebrant, I will collaboratively create a memorable event with you that captures the story and essence of your loved one and becomes a treasured memory.

I want to create memorable funerals and celebration of life ceremonies because I have learned through losing friends and family that a person stays with us once they die and how we celebrate their life also stays with us. Making peace with death and allowing everyone to grieve in their own way begins with the ceremony and rituals we create together. I love creating rituals and using words and passion to conduct a ceremony that allows people to experience the full range of emotions and memories related to the person they have lost.

I bring my background as a counselor ( MA psychology), actor, writer and creative spirit to my work. I have been working with people throughout my adult life first as a therapist and counselor, and now as an actor, writer and Celebrant. I love the creative process and enjoy collaboratively coming up with solutions. I have also spent much of my work life embracing and creating dialogue about diversity and inclusion which is one of my core values. I believe in creating a space where people feel listened to and empathized with. I believe the best work comes from true collaboration and facilitating people’s vision and desires.
