Coffs Harbour and NORTH COAST
My background was primarily teaching improvised theatre skills to young people K-12 and as a consultant to drama teachers in the local area. I also had a passion for yoga and meditation and became a qualified teacher in this field which more recently has seen me specialise in teaching the mindfulness based stress reduction program in schools, at ongoing professional development days and also in the community.
I’ve been a celebrant for almost 2 years now! Wow that time went quickly! I’ve had a lot of exposure to talking to people from one on one to large groups of people. I love to listen to people and enjoy being part of their special days. I've also realised all my life skills have come together in my role as a celebrant.
I chose the name "Rose Quartz Ceremonies" as I have a love of crystals & rose quartz means unconditional love and what more can we ask than to be loved unconditionally!
Having a love of poetry & rhyme I have composed many poems to suit different occasions and situations. My other interests include organic gardening, dehydrating herbs, natural health & fitness and I play the piano accordian!
I worked for many years as a library manager for major NSW Libraries. During that time I developed my love of language and public speaking. I qualified as a Civil Celebrant in 2008, and have completed further training in conducting Funerals and other ceremonies.
I shares my life with my husband Joe and our much loved four legged friends. Joe and I have moved back to the Clarence Valley, and are settling in to our heritage home in Grafton. Joe is a born and bred Clarence lad, and I have lived in both Brooms Head and Lawrence during my time at Grafton Library.
Married with 5 children
Love making the most of life and celebrating milestones
