Celebrant since 2015

I provide celebrant services for marriages and civil unions, and for funerals and other family and life events. I was appointed as an independent Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant in 2015.

My focus, as a Celebrant, is to support you to design a service, ceremony or celebration that fully meets your needs, and those of your family and others who are important to you. I see it as my role to provide you with information and options, and to assist you in making your personal choices.

In the main, I offer services throughout Taranaki. However, as I have a strong client-service focus, I am happy to work outside of Taranaki – I have worked with, and provided services for, families in Whanganui and Lower Hutt. I also provide staff training workshops for community agencies and I am active, on a voluntary basis, in activities in the New Plymouth community.

I bring to my role a Taranaki-based background as a manager of community-based social services, and health and disability services. In my early working life, I was involved in special education and social work. Prior to moving to New Plymouth in 2010, I worked in law reform and legal policy / research with Government agencies in Wellington.
