I’m a Queens Graduate (92) with my own law practice and I teach part time in the Para Legal program at Humber College. I am also an appointed Designated Minister so I am open to many paths. I live in Etobicoke but serve a large part of the GTA including downtown. I love meeting and interacting with new people as well as advocating for people who cannot advocate for themselves. In my younger days I also completed several half-marathons, duathlons and triathlons. I hold out hope that I will one day finish a full marathon and maybe an Ironman Triathlon! Besides travelling, I enjoy experimenting with vegetarian cooking, and organizing and participating in activities with family and friends, including my 9 godchildren and 15 nieces and nephews.
I was born in Barbados, and after living and working in Toronto and York Region for most of my life, I now reside in city of Hamilton. Personally, I love the ministerial work I do. I am passionate about people and community. I am well-traveled, adore hiking, equal amounts of baking, cooking, eating and working out after all that baking, and a good cup of tea. If you are looking for a wedding officiant with a big smile, who loves to laugh, and is both genuine and enthusiastic, then I’d love to meet you. I would love to be part of your special day, as someone once did for me.
