Welcome to my website and thank you for stopping by.

For over 20 years, I designed, wrote and officiated at various life events and celebrations.

As a BC  Marriage Commissioner for 10 years and now as a Certified  Life-Cycle Wedding Celebrant/ BC Wedding Officiant I have performed over 900 wedding ceremonies not counting the numerous Commitment and/or Renewal of Wedding Vows Ceremonies and Eulogies.

Wedding Ceremony: My passion is co-creating , writing and performing personal and meaningful Wedding Ceremonies to honor the love relationship of a couple. How do you want to feel on your day? How important is the ceremony for you?

Memorial or Celebration of Life: We are born with a blank page however through our lifetime the pages are filled with every experience and with every decision or direction we have made along the way. It is a pleasure to honor the life of a loved one who has died by telling their life story. 

As a Volunteer Member of the  RCMP Victim Service Unit for many years,  I witnessed first hand the grief and emotional pain  victims suffer from a  death either  sudden, accidental or by suicide.

As a  Co-host on The  Death Matters Live show,  Vancouver Co-op Radio, I interviewed many members of our communities giving them the opportunity to tell their story of loss and grief .Through these experiences I gained a better  insight and understanding of the emotions and challenges folks suffer after a death.

“Why do people call it a End-of-Life Celebration”? “What is there to Celebrate?” Simply, we grieve the physical loss of the person, however we gather to celebrate their Spirit and personality by telling their life story with compassion and empathy. The ceremony can be as simply as gathering around a kitchen table with loved ones and friends to renting a space to gathering in a favorite park, on a beach or on a mountain top.

A Celebration of life is for the living …a Rite of Passage naturally taken and  necessary as the journey of grief begins.
