It is my true belief that every one that lives on the earth, for a short while or a life time, leaves something to be celebrated. Honoring the life lived with a Celebrant gives an opportunity to personalize the service in a way that you canít find anywhere else. Each one of my services is custom fit for the person that has died. I feel so pleased and honored to do this work because I have lived through the experience of loss. I found having a celebration of life brought the comfort and closure I needed.


Having been widowed and losing my mother in the recent past, I understand the need to eulogize, honor, and pay tribute to a loved one that has passed on. A celebration of a loved oneís life can be very healing. A gathering of family and friends provides comfort and support for one another. A service does not have to be a formal event. I have provided services in family homes, in the back yard of friends, and in beautiful parks. I believe this service should be a personal reflection of the life lived. Every one deserves to have a service that honors their life when they die. Together we will create and present a special moment that will honor your loved one's life in a special way and bring peace and comfort for family and friends.


WHAT IS A CELEBRANT? A Certified Funeral Celebrant is a person who works to meet family's needs during the most difficult time of their lives. A Celebrant is trained to help individuals create and present a funeral, memorial, or celebration of life that is personalized for the person that has died.


WHY INVOLVE A CELEBRANT? Many families today do not belong to a church. They have no family minister. Many families are choosing to have a celebration of the life lived rather than a sermon. I have worked along side ministers in their church to give a family both. A Celebrant will honor the wishes of the family and is able to do either a religious or non religious service. The family can have a service just the way they would like and be involved as much or as little as they like. This is truly their service.
