Hello! Thank you so much for visiting this page to learn about who I am. Here are a few things you may like to know.
The most amazing part of my work as a ceremony officiant is meeting people during the transitional moments of their lives. Births, weddings, anniversaries, and the passing of loved ones bring out the human in all of us. It is during these times that we are most vulnerable, happy, awestruck, and emotional.
Throughout my life I have amassed quite a variety of education and experience, and it all goes into supporting what I do. I am organized, efficient, grounded, honest, friendly, compassionate, and full of energy. Oh, yes, I have my own challenges and difficulties – but I don’t think I’ll tell you about those just yet.
Here’s some helpful information about my education: I was ordained a Buddhist Chaplain in 2007 at the Kwan Um School of Zen, and ordained an Interfaith Minister in 2008 at the One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York. My education also includes a Master’s Degree in Communication from the University of Rhode Island.
My previous positions include Director of the Kwan Um School of Zen, Adjunct Professor at URI, Director of Workshops & Training at WES in NYC, and various positions in administration, marketing and education.
I live in the Providence area, and have a wonderful daughter and grandson whom I adore. When not working on ceremonies, you’ll find me cooking, gardening, and doing some sort of work or another on my home. I also spend a great deal of time reading and researching religious and spiritual texts and scriptures as well as practicing various forms of meditation.
Enough about me. Contact me and let me know about you!
