I love working with people and have spent my whole professional career doing just that. Homeless Support, Youth Work, Community Development, Tertiary Educator, it has always been about people. It’s the type of work that makes you reflect on what’s important and meaningful in life and is a gentle reminder for me to treasure and value the special moments in my journey; date night with my husband, bedtime stories with my daughter, snuggles with my baby boy and catch ups with friends.
What I value most as a civil celebrant is the involvement I have with one of the most powerful of human emotions; the giving and receiving of love!
The decision to become a celebrant came for me after having one of those ‘ah-ha’ moments. It was a moment I experienced, funnily enough, as a guest at a wedding. The celebrant delivered a ceremony that was innovative and memorable, and as soon as it finished I turned to my husband and whispered “I want to do that!”. The following week I was enrolled to complete my Certificate IV in Celebrancy and I never looked back.
Weddings, renewal of vows, commitment and naming ceremonies are all magical celebrations of loves journey and as a Civil Celebrant there is nothing more wonderful than being a part of these extraordinary moments in people’s lives.
Life, just like love is a journey, and I try hard to fill my life journey with things that are meaningful and that I am passionate about. Because of this I work part time at a community centre, I volunteer at my daughter’s school and I turn moments into memories through the creation of ceremonies.
I look forward to celebrating your journey with you.
