I absolutely relish in being a celebrant and bring my best energy and creative talents to this work. My ceremonies are of the highest quality, delivered with warmth and grace. You will find me easy and fun to work with as well as professional and focused on your needs.
I have been blessed with an extremely exciting life and it just keeps getting better.
I grew up as a US Military brat (as they call it) living all over the world and also being privileged to attend 7 schools during my primary and high school years. I know that this experience enabled me to be comfortable in relating to all different kinds of people.
While attending Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, I was involved in many different organisations/fraternities often being elected into executive positions. These experiences helped me in my organisational and public speaking skills.
After graduating from University with a BA in Public Relations, another move to Germany ensued with me working at a bank , then becoming an International Flight Attendant with Delta Airlines , this was another eye opening experience that further whet my appetite for my love of different cultures, lands and people.
My dream came true when I moved to this beautiful country and can officially call it home, receiving my citizenship in 2011. I absolutely love the multiculturalism of Australia and the diversity of the land.
Since my move to Australia, I have run a lucrative tour company, managed a successful holiday let accommodation, have joyfully shared my home during a 4 ½ year period with 39 international students, broadcasted at Katoomba’s community radio station 89.1 FM for almost six years and am currently on the executive of Blue Mountains Toastmasters (having received my Advanced Bronze Leadership & Advanced Silver Communicator awards). I am also president of an advanced Toastmasters club called Enhance Toastmasters.
I have always loved learning so in addition to becoming an authorized Civil Marriage Celebrant appointed by the Attorney General’s office in 2008, I have received a Cert 3 in Business Admin, Cert 3 in Events, Cert 3 in Radio Broadcasting and a Cert 4 in Media.
I have conducted various ceremonies over the past few years – weddings, funerals, baby namings, have emceed at – Art Exhibition openings, a book launch, music charity events and even organised some very popular themed parties.
I love acknowledging all of life’s milestone moments and it is truly my honour when a couple or family entrust me to create and deliver a personalised ceremony which celebrates the couple’s relationship or commemorates a person’s life.
From my past life experiences I know that I can relate to a wide variety of people. I accept everyone for what they believe in and make people feel comfortable. My strong speaking voice, compassionate nature, attention to detail, love of ritual and people will ensure that your ceremony will be memorable.
