Susan who lives in Waterloo, came to us from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and she is one of our most experienced wedding officiants: "It would be my privilege to perform one of the most important events of your life. The ceremony is a special time of joyous celebration for the union being created between two people. I will do my utmost to make your ceremony reflect your individuality and uniqueness. I will conduct your ceremony as you want it to be. It's your day and I want to help make it all you want it to be."
As an Ordained Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church, I believe that each couple planning their wedding should have the ceremony they desire. I have worked as a teacher, youth minister, and as chaplain in hospitals, prison, and schools. Originally from Vancouver, I now live in Cambridge, in the Galt district. I am a creative person who will do the utmost to incorporate your ideas into your personalized wedding ceremony. I have presided at over 300 weddings, facilitated groups, helped with motivational speaking, and thoroughly enjoy working with people from various beliefs and lifestyle choices. To this day I still enjoy working with kids, running youth drama programs, teaching drama skills and putting on performances. I look forward to being part of a day you will remember for years to come.
