I am an experienced Designated Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church serving my community of Kitchener and nearby areas. My background in family relations, marriage and family psychotherapy gives me the confidence and skills to ensure your ceremony is a celebration and expression of love. My intention will be to explore, listen and help you give meaning to your personalized wedding ceremony. Together we will create the ceremony to reflect who you are as individuals and the relationship and expression of love you will share with family and friends. My passion for unique, special, fun, and memorable wedding ceremonies started several decades ago for my own ceremony with my partner and children. I will provide all the support essential to reflect all your wishes and provide you with a lasting memory.
I live in Hamilton, and I hold my credentials with The Anglican Church Of Canada Diocese Of Niagara. My personal style is informal, relaxed and collaborative. I've had the privilege of working with a wide range of responsibilities, with incredibly diverse people. I've taught in high schools and universities. I've been a Chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces where I've been responsible for helping Christians, Jews, Muslims and those of no particular faith. I have Bachelor in Sacred Theology and a Master in Religious Education. When I’m on my downtime, you’ll most likely find me fishing, camping, hiking, and photographing. That’s where I go to plug-in and re-charge. I am looking forward to spending time with you, and I believe I will bring to your wedding the skills and experience to conduct the wedding ceremony that most fits your dream.
