Seasoned professional. Wildly creative. Somewhat quirky
For years, I was not a fan of ceremonies. I was the one who headed off to my happy place, both at church (sorry, Minister buddies) and in public ceremonies. Later, when I became a professional who worked in front of/with groups, it morphed into “wow…such a profound moment…and it feels like everyone is off in their happy places!”
Seems to me we are all longing for connection…to each other and to this marvellous life… and for a sense of meaning in this fast-paced world. And ceremony is supposed to give us that. So that’s what I aim for.
Here’s what I tap into to make that happen:
Years of experience working with groups. A seasoned facilitator, I have the skills and experience to read a room and to raise the energy within it.
I listen and ask good questions. I put your story front and centre and let it shine. I may perform your ceremony, but I do not perform. It’s all about you.
A deep appreciation for professionalism in its most positive form – for me, that’s mutual respect, striving for excellence, minding the details and following through.
My own spiritual development began in a traditional mainstream church, and moved to “more spiritual than religious” after years of personal study. I am comfortable with and knowledgeable about both world religions and modern spirituality.
I am a Modern Metaphysical Minister, who like most of us in BC, finds a more profound connection to spirit in nature than within four walls once a week.

My offbeat sense of creativity has allowed me to do everything from raffle a stuffed pheasant in a memorial service to play a restaurant hostess before a surprise wedding.
I’m pretty good with a punch line, especially, when things don’t go as planned. Better at unstuffy than seriously formal. Able to roll with the punches.
I’m a work in progress, but aren’t we all?
