Authenticity is my passion! My most sincere desire is for you to have the wedding that feels most authentic to your hearts. Whether it be formal, theme, silly, or destination...this day is about the two of you.
This is your day, and I work with you to make it everything you have been hoping for. Officiating your wedding is just one way to celebrate life with you on your special day, and encourage you to live your best life!
I truly love helping people in their journey for all things authentic.
My background as an ordained minister includes over 20 years experience in hosting retreats and speaking...teaching groups and individuals how to move in their gifts and motivating them to let their light shine in the world.
I love to share wisdom, humor, and encouragement with every person I meet. One of my greatest joys is helping you see how amazing and unique you are, and encouraging you to live your most authentic life. No matter where you are on that journey, I can speak your language and help you on your way.
Living my authentic life includes reading, riding motorcycles, going to the beach (my happy place), enjoying funky coffee shops, playing chess and dice games with friends, playing guitar and drums, singing, binge watching Netflix, lounging with my four chihuahuas and spending time with my spouse and enjoying life.
