About Me

As your wedding or commitment ceremony may be one of the most important days of your life, I believe it’s very important to feel comfortable and at ease with your officiant.

  • Passionate about social justice and ensure that others feel comfortable and respected at all times
  • Truly enjoy planning an individualized ceremony and hope that the couple is able to have a ceremony exactly as they envision
  • Believe that weddings and commitment ceremonies should be fun, elegant, and memorable

Spiritual/Belief Background:

  • I believe that all religions and faith backgrounds are to be respected, in such that one’s practices do not harm others
  • Ordained through the Universal Life Church Monastery
  • Raised in a Roman Catholic household
  • Passionate about learning from religious and spiritual beliefs


  • Wrote and prepared my own wedding ceremony service and incorporated other wedding traditions
  • Knowledge in hand-fasting, unity candles/sand/water, jumping the broom, breaking of the glass, and other cultural wedding rituals and practices

Personal Passions:

  • Enjoy spending time with family and friends
  • Love and appreciate nature
  • Like to go hiking, rafting, and exploring new places
  • Believe all animals should be respected and honored. I have rescued two cats from local animal control shelters and wish I could adopt more
