I have done many tasks in my life from Social Work to Teaching Social Welfare in the TAFE child care certificate program, to running holiday units on Phillip Island, Vic.
One aspect I enjoy most about the different roles I have performed, is working with other people collectively achieving our goals and learning new things along the way.
I am a strong advocate of marriage equality.
After photographing over 600 weddings as a wedding photographer and witnessing a huge variety of weddings both civil and religious, I felt that I would really enjoy designing unique wedding ceremonies for couples that were more relevant to them and reflected their personalities.
My love of working with people and the skills and qualities I developed during my career in Human Resources Management led me to undertake the training to become a Marriage Celebrant. I live by the sea at Batemans Bay, NSW with my husband Marcus - who is also my sound and music man at ceremonies.
My hobbies are tai chi, beach walking and spending time with my family. I was registered as a Marriage Celebrant by the Attorney General's department in April 2009 and since that time I have enjoyed meeting new people including other celebrants and wedding suppliers and visiting many new places up and down the coast and inland to Canberra.
My passions include travelling Australia during the wedding season lull. My husband and I love 4WD'ing and getting into the outback and remote areas of our beautiful country.
I am a mature woman who has been blessed to be married to the love of my life for many years. I was born and raised in a small town in NZ and moved to Australia just over 20 years ago. I have three adult children who are making their own way in the world and am blessed to have grandchildren to spoil.
my lightbulb moment came few years ago after being a guest at a Celebrant-led wedding in their own home in Sydney, and marvelling at what a truly personalised Ceremony can feel and look like.
Now I am a trained Marriage and Family Celebrant with AQT of Celebrancy by Keith Lammond, a very well-known and experienced Celebrant
