Have you ever attended a funeral and the officiant inserts the wrong name into a cookie-cutter service? OR you sit there biting your tongue listening to rhetoric, platitudes and narrative that have absolutely nothing to do with the person who meant so much to you?
This is why I followed my calling to enroll in the Celebrant Foundation & Institute® to become a Certified Funeral Celebrant®. My goal is to carry out your wishes! My promise to you is that the Celebration of Life will be all about your loved one. Who they were, what they taught you, their philosophy on life and their lasting legacy. AND, I guarantee to get the name(s) right.
I am a lifelong learner, enthusiastic speaker, creative writer, rabid researcher and mixed media artist. Some people say I’m a geek for embracing the latest technology.
I enjoy just about everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer in every season. Some of my interests include: motorcycle riding, hiking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dogsledding, reading, baking, meditation, and yoga. Also, I really love furry, four-legged companions.
Where are you in your grief journey? I meet you there with a calm, compassionate, caring presence. Getting to know your loved one through you, your family, and friends is a real honor and together we are connecting the stories for an extraordinary Celebration of Life. It is a privilege to share my passion for truly celebrating the life of your loved one with an exceptional Ceremony.
