I create moments of significance in the lives of others which help tell the story of their love. I do this through my work as a celebrant at weddings, funerals and naming days.
What may surprise you is, although my marriage was not for life, I believe love is the strongest emotion. It’s my mission to inspire you to take that step to commit and cherish each other forever.
Six years ago, I returned to my original career as a social worker after 22 years running my own aromatherapy and massage practice. It was a difficult choice, as I loved the ability to help others, but after 4000 massages, my body told me it was time to follow a more restful profession. As I turned 50 I had a yearning for more and wanted to continue to make a significant difference in people's lives.
I loved my job as a social worker, but knew there was more for me…
Having been inspired by some long-ago comments from friends that I would make a good celebrant, I started to feel that calling. Not one to waste time, I stared researching and was enrolled on a course within two weeks.
Once I started studying, I felt the love of learning rekindle and a natural pull into the whole world of being a celebrant. It was an opportunity to help shape those life changing moments and be involved at the turning points in people’s lives.
I’ve always been a catalyst of change in the lives of others through both my social work and aromatherapy, so I feel I've been guided to this career as it’s such a natural fit.
So, what do I believe now and always?
Everyone has a story, whether it's at the beginning of their life, at momentous events throughout, or at their final transition. I'm honoured to help people express their stories, having always been a collector and curator of thoughts and memories.
From the massage table to the office, I've listened to stories from young and old, and if there’s one thing I know, it’s our stories are our heritage. I treasure the chance to help people share this personal gift on special occasions as a way of expressing their love.
