As a certified Life Coach and Relationship Coach and a Wilderness Rites of Passage guide, I find helping a couple plan and execute their ideal wedding ceremony to be deeply rewarding. It is part of a major transition in one’s life, even if you have lived together for years. Something energetically profound happens when you declare your love and commitment in a ceremony with family and friends.

I am also a teacher and practitioner of Compassionate Communications, which makes it even more fun when the couple I marry allow me to assist them in easing the stress of planning a wedding. Also I am available for communication counseling anytime before or after the knot is tied.

Even though I am not involved with any organized religion, I founded and lead a Spiritual community for 5 years. I enjoy public speaking and inspiring others to live an authentic life of deep connection and aliveness.

I have a background in business management, much of it as a solo-preneur. Currently I am a public speaker, a deep self care coach for women, and a wedding officiant. I love my community and am learning to ask what is needed and do what I can. I make time for myself to hike in the mountains, dance, read and be a part of stimulating intimate conversations as often as possible.

I live in Paonia, Colorado, a beautiful river valley on the western slope of the Rockies. It is a great place for weddings! I do travel to marry people, and I love having them come to the North Fork Valley for their celebration.
