About Me

Work Life

I will officiate my 800th wedding in 2021 after 13 years, so I must be doing something right in the wedding industry! Have clocked up 25 straight years of high school teaching having a Bachelor of Education and a Masters Degree in Literacy from Melbourne and Monash Universities respectively. Quite ironic given the often playful tone of my relaxed and fun filled ceremonies. The students keep me young, organised and ready for anything! Love challenging myself whilst making a difference. 

I have now moved into the Adult Education sector, teaching VCAL at Swinburne and training celebrant with The Celebrant Institute.

Family & kids

I Iove and adore my family, they’re so important and what would my ‘about me’ section be without them? I have five children/step children between the ages of 15 and 20 who keep my partner Jason and I busy (as you can imagine!).

Football, basketball, netball, dancing, training, homework, productions, rehearsals, part time work, play dates, sleepovers and family events means weekends and weeknights are flat out; but I wouldn’t have it any other way!


Easy, relaxed personality

Nothing phases me really… Why worry about things that might not happen? I’m ready for anything-whatever you want, it can be accommodated.

Students, brides and grooms over the years definitely don’t forget me, I love to make an impression!

A big part of about me is the ability to match your desired tone and feeling. I love taking the time to get to know you so your ceremonies are as unique as you are.

When we meet up, you’ll be able to see this for yourself!
