Roots & Background

I grew up in Westchester County NY and was raised a Roman Catholic. I loved the rituals of the mass but not the dogma. I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Special Education, Psychology and Religion. I studied Yoga, and eastern philosophy and now consider myself spiritual not religious. I meditate and practice Tai Chi daily with my husband of many years.

The first wedding I performed was in 1976, soon after my completion of an All Faiths Ministry program. Before becoming a full time Celebrant I worked with people with disabilities, and later on with people living with HIV and AIDS. Since graduating from the Celebrant USA Foundation in 2004 I have written and performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies from very formal multicultural ceremonies to small backyard and simple elopements.

I am totally comfortable with same sex ceremonies and treat them as any other. Each ceremony is as different as the people getting married. This is the one time in your life when it is, and should be, all about you.
