About Me

I am 50 something years old, have been married for 30 something years, and have one lovely daughter called Martha and a very naughty dog called Daisy. I have lived in a little terraced house in Stafford with my husband for as long as we have been together. We need to move!

I was a Registered General Nurse for over 25 years, in a career that took me from Intensive Care to Nuclear Medicine with much in between. I worked in Telford, Wolverhampton, Stoke and Stafford hospitals, and I had the privilege of looking after some truly amazing people of all backgrounds, cultures and faiths. They taught me a great deal about human courage and strength.

I am a lover of animals and nature, dogs, birds and walking, and I love nothing better than a local walk on Doxey Marshes or up on Cannock Chase and when holiday time comes around, my favourite thing is to escape to a Hebridean Island. Watching the seasons change is one of my greatest pleasures, my favourite season being autumn.

I would say I am creative person, I draw and paint when time allows, I write and take photographs whenever I can and I make my own sourdough bread every week. I also sing in my family band called the Loveheart Billionaires.

I decided to become a civil celebrant and to train to create and conduct namings, weddings, civil partnerships and funerals, because I feel that people should have a choice when it comes to these extraordinary life events. I feel that I have, through my personal life experience, developed skills to be able to do a sensitive and professional job.

For many years I have used meditation to combat my own stress and prevent my thoughts from spiralling out of control, it works wonders sometimes! I recently trained with the British School of Meditation so that I could share this wonderful practice with others.

I believe in being honest and authentic, inclusive and above all compassionate and non-judgmental. I would describe myself as a spiritual agnostic. I believe that love and tolerance are the only way.

About Me
"Celebrancy, in my book, embraces us all in our secular spirituality. It says, if you want to celebrate with a poem and a hymm, or a folk song and a prayer, then it is up to you"
