I have been a celebrant for over twelve years. Originally from the UK, I first settled in New Zealand where I worked as both a wedding and funeral celebrant. Over the years, however, I have felt the pull of just doing funeral and memorial services and working with families.
It wasn’t until I moved to the Gold Coast and met my husband Craig that I decided to finally make the move to work in this area full time and leave the wedding industry behind me.
Being a funeral celebrant is not just a job to me. Every family I meet and work with have an incredibly special place in my heart, and every family has different needs and requirements from me. It is a huge privilege to be trusted by families at such a vulnerable and difficult time as losing a loved one and it is a role I take very seriously. I strive to do my very best with every family I work with.
It is my sincere hope that Craig and I bring compassion and love to our roles as Celebrants. My hubby is a joy to work with and I know that our individual talents and experience complement each other perfectly and bring something new to our work as Celebrants.
I am a member of Funeral Celebrants Association Australia as well as other Celebrant associations.
Family, honesty, empathy, integrity, respect, and sincerity are all important to me in my life and my work.
