Gosford, Wyong and CENTRAL COAST
I love working with couples to create a meaningful and authentic ceremony and feel very privileged to be doing this. I have performed ceremonies in backyards, parks and indoor venues and am always amazed at how special each one is.
Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast have the most beautiful locations!! I have also performed Naming Ceremonies,emceed at functions and led funeral and memorial celebrations.
I am a registered marriage celebrant and a retired health professional who has worked as a registered nurse, midwife and manager throughout my career. Through believing in and supporting a right to choice I have been appointed as the inaugural coordinator of two birthing centres (one in NSW and one in QLD); always working closely with people in a respectful manner, driven by compassion and empathy. I
have completed tertiary studies to masters level. My skills and education have been embellished by working in diverse health settings: tertiary hospitals, remote areas, private hospitals, community and home birthing. I have enjoyed a career living and working in Queensland, Northern Territory and New South Wales. I am a published author of one book and, although quite an amateur, enjoy my garden. I am proud to be part of a large loving family.
.I have a background in education, disability, event management, community service and used to be a singer in a band in younger days. I am a confident public speaker and am told I am compassionate and a good listener. I value the opportunity to celebrate life's events and acknowledge the transitions we experience in our life journey. Working together with you and your family we can create a ceremony that is respectful, rejoices in shared memories and honours your loved one.
I am a registered civil celebrant with a background in health care. My professional career has traversed many health care pathways, some joyous, some very sad. I have worked in three different states in Australia in a variety of settings; tertiary hospitals, remote areas, private hospitals, community and home birthing.
I have completed studies to Masters level whilst enjoying the most significant of privileges - helping people through the milestones of their life journeys. I enjoy being part of a large immediate and extended family and am grateful to have been able to acquire many life skills.
It is a priveledge to work with bereaved families to ensure their loved one is farewelled in a celebration of their life well lived.
