A little bit about me,

I have always lived in Sussex, I went to school in Hailsham and in my teens the family moved to Punnetts Town. I worked at a Timber & Builders merchants, with the NHS and then I joined the Civil Service.

My journey into the world of being a Celebrant started in 1998, I was 27 and my Uncle had passed away. My Aunt asked me if I would be prepared to say a few words at his funeral, I was honoured and incredibly nervous - after all, you don't get a second chance if you get things wrong..

The service went well and I was so proud to have been a part of it, I was able to say the things that other friends and family members wanted to - but couldn't.

During my time as  a Civil Servant I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the nicest people anyone could wish to and, at times I have experienced the very worst things that thankfully many people will never have to, but all providing me with a broad and diverse set of life skills / experiences.

From that funeral back in 1998 I went on to speak at every family funeral since and it got me thinking - what a rewarding job it would be to be be involved in such an important part of someone's farewell.

"My role is as a conduit - a narrator, drawing together the threads and weaving them into a tapestry

of a life lived and loved. Bringing back cherished memories, thoughts, feelings and milestones.
