Who I am:
People often ask why I do what I do. The short answer is that I love love and I love my job ~ and it shows! I am genuine, sincere, warm and authentic. And after five years of crafting ceremonies, I still get excited about every wedding I celebrate.
The longer answer includes the fact that I often despair at the state of the world, and this makes it even more important to me to mark moments of joy and hope and togetherness.
I am queer and polyamorous, and I love celebrating within our own beautiful community. I also don’t take for granted our hard-won rights. Being queer means I’ve always given extra thought to how we can approach life’s milestones ~ intentionally, mindfully, thoughtfully ~ an approach that everyone can benefit
I come from a family that loves tradition, ritual, and celebration. Whether I'm dancing, being with my four children, or planning a lifecycle ceremony, my guiding principle is always
relationship and connection.
Where I've learned:
So much of what I bring to my work has come through living a life, constantly learning about myself and others. I bring to all my work an innate sense of empathy, compassion, and humour.
More formally, I am non-denominational Metaphysical Minister, ordained through the Bancroft Centre for Awakening Spiritual Growth.
I completed the Contemplative End of Life Care certification through the Institute for Traditional Medicine in Toronto.
I hold a Masters of Education from University of Toronto/Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, and I was a psychotherapist in private practice for 15 years.
I would love to get to know you. If you'd like to speak with me about officiating at your ceremony, feel free to email me or submit the form below.
I am blessed to have the love of partners, children and friends in my life.
Each opens a new door
in my heart.
I also fill my life with a love of
dance and movement in partnership with several amazing organizations and projects.
