I was born and raised Roman
Catholic in a small town in
Westchester County, NY. I loved the
ritual and ceremony of the Mass, but
as I grew older I could not relate to
the dogma of the church. At Boston
University I studied Religion along
with Psychology and Education. As
a young adult I studied Eastern
Philosophies and practiced Yoga and
meditation. I was also interested in
Native American traditions as well as
I am now living with my husband David in beautiful
Central Virginia. In 2003 I gave up my human services
job and created an art form by carving inspirational
Chinese and Japanese calligraphy mounted on tiles.* In
2004 I graduated from the USA Celebrant Foundation
with honors. What I learned at the Foundation was the
structure of ritual and ceremony and how to craft a
ceremony to reflect each person's values. I still practice
meditation and also practice Tai Chi and Qigong every
morning with my husband.
I enjoy ceremony work for many reasons but most of all I
love helping people find their core or their sacred space;
and I get to go along for the ride.
