As a Designated Minister my former career was as a Commisioned RCMP officer. I also had the most rewarding experience to travel to Africa and consult in the rebuilding of the Sierra Leone Police force. More recently, I enjoyed a four year term as Councillor for the Township of Greater Madawaska. Today, my wife Donna and I and our Portuguese Waterdog Mitzy, enjoy the great outdoors at home in Calabogie, and where I indulge in one of my passions; gardening. I look forward to officiating whatever type of wedding ceremony you would like for your special day.
I would be thrilled to be your Officiant and participate in your journey to unite love, lives and families. My husband Ric and our two children moved to the beautiful community of Constance Bay in 1990. After several successful years in high tech customer service, I am now a proud small business owner in the community. One of my passions is to play a part in the happiest moments of peoples’ lives and to conduct your wedding ceremony. I would love to hear all about your plans and work with you to make it the most special day of your life.
It’s an honour and a privilege to be asked to perform your wedding ceremony. How can one not want to share and be part of the energy that surrounds the love of two people. My family and our dog Dixie live a simple life in Kanata. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their adventures, and so I volunteer with the Royal Canadian Legion and the Sports Club. My hobbies include a good mystery novel or movie and trying to find out “who done it” before the ending. Although I don’t have a green thumb, I enjoy puttering in my garden and sampling the tastes of the fruits of my labour.
