As a certified Humanist Officiant I am licensed by the Registrar General and the Ontario Humanist Society to provide legal, secular wedding ceremonies in Ontario. Humanist ceremonies don’t use religious language but are respectful of both your wedding wishes and your cultural traditions. Your wedding day is all about you and I enjoy working with couples to make it memorable. Your ceremony will be personal and special and one that you will remember after it’s all over. My goal is to make your ceremony the part of your wedding that you will worry about the least. Whether you already know exactly what you want to say or if you need a little inspiration I will be your ceremony partner and support. I really love what I do and that makes every couple important to me.

I also offer officiant services for End of Life/Celebration of Life. When you lose someone you love it’s very hard to deal with saying goodbye. A Humanist officiant can relieve you of the burden of planning what to say and how to celebrate the life of your loved one respectfully and joyfully.

A little about me.

After a career in communications I decided to take my daughter’s advice and do something that actually had meaning for me. I realized that the values of Humanism aligned perfectly with the way I lived my life. Being an officiant allows me to provide a non-judgmental service to people at important milestones in their lives, sharing in their joys and sorrows. Instead of working on inspirational but impersonal email campaigns, I now get to actually live in the moment, in person, with real people.

I’m married with two children and two dogs. I read widely and love to garden, hike, ski and laugh with my friends. If possible I will always choose being outside over housework of any kind. I’m the Registrar of the Ontario Humanist Society and my favourite Humanist is Gene Roddenberry.
