I spent the first 25 years raising a family and although I’ve had mostly enjoyable jobs, some were less fulfilling than others. Looking for another path to follow I began officiating when I realized there was a need for this type of service.
There are many young people today without any religious or church affiliations, and others who find themselves separated from their church for a variety of reasons, yet want a formal ceremony rather than a trip to the courthouse.
Many second-marriage couples are blending their families and want their children involved; I have been able to accommodate their needs in a meaningful way.
In addition to being a wedding officiant, I am a member of the local theatre community.
