I have been a celebrant for many years and in that time I have officiated at several thousand weddings and a greater number of life-based funeral ceremonies.
Much of my work is repeat business, particularly in the area of funerals. However, I have also married quite a few people more than once!
I am lucky that I started as a celebrant when I was young, so many families have returned to me for other types of celebrations, including baby namings, renewal of vows, funerals and memorial services etc.
I am married with two adult children and six beautiful grandchildren. I look forward to the day that they marry and ask me to be 'their celebrant' too.
I am a Life Member and Secretary of the Association of Civil Marriage Celebrants of Victoria.
For all of my adult life I have been involved with the Noble Park Public Hall Trust and I am presently writing a book on the history of the Noble Park Public Hall.
Together with my husband, we are involved with the Gnylmarung Aboriginal Community at Beagle Bay in Western Australia and this is also our favourite holiday destination.
