As a Licensed Officiant with the Humanist Association of Canada, I perform marriages and celebrations of life in Stratford and the surrounding area of London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Goderich – and beyond, by request.

People say that I have a warm, engaging presence and a strong, clear voice – formal when necessary, but not necessarily formal. I have extensive professional experience in public speaking, event planning and writing. I love my work as a Humanist Officiant because I believe in the importance of ritual and I thrive on the creative process of working with couples to craft a personalized ceremony that tells your story and reflects your values – to make your vision of a perfect ceremony a reality.

Your marriage is the most important social contract of your lives. Humanist ceremonies offer broad flexibility and creativity in the structure and form that works for you. My goal is to create a ceremony that celebrates your relationship in a graceful and engaging way, sharing your love with your family, friends and colleagues. I would be honoured to be asked to make your wedding day exhilarating, inspiring and truly memorable.
