I am an experienced celebrant and consultant, mother and grandmother with experience of life and its many ups and downs. I love the depth and diversity of celebrant work, most of which has been word of mouth and some of which has come through my 2 year tenure on the national executive of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ).

I developed many of my skills working for a global corporate. I then became national manager for a not for profit organisation. My key responsibilities were managing contracted psychologists and counsellors, working with client organisations on key issues for their staff – diagnosing concerns, facilitation, managing conflicts and offering workplace trauma support for affected people.

I love working with people, helping them realize their hopes and dreams and being able to work with those who have lost loved ones and who may be experiencing trauma and loss or both.
