About MeI Love A Good Story!
Why I Do What I Do
Working in Hospice Palliative Care as a Chaplain in Calgary at the Agapé Hospice for 8 years helped me discover my passion for listening to the stories of people’s lives. I loved learning about their history, their families, their accomplishments, and the legacy they were leaving behind. While I didn’t know it at the time, I quickly learned that this was my life calling and what I was destined to do.
Since then, I have developed a career out of celebrating individual’s unique lives by listening to their stories, and sharing them. I believe in the importance of celebrating milestones in people’s lives, whether it is welcoming a new baby into the world, uniting two people together in a personal and meaningful wedding ceremony, or celebrating a life well lived. I am a trained Chaplain, a Certified Funeral Celebrant and an Appointed Marriage Commissioner for the Province of Alberta.
I recognize that it is a privilege to be part of so many monumental special occasions. I get to be there to help a family celebrate the good times and to offer comfort as they say good-bye to a loved one. Most importantly, I get to weave your story together into a meaningful celebration that will touch your heart and the hearts of the people that mean the most to you.
“We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, the ceremony was absolutely perfect and beautiful. We both could not have asked for more and we are so glad that we found you to do it. You made it a very memorable, and such an honourable day. We had so many people come up to us and tell us what wonderful time they had and how moving it was – this couldn’t have been without your help. Like we mentioned before, we felt as though you nailed exactly what Gerry and I thought, said and felt about each other and life. We wanted Dane included and you found the most perfect fitting way to do so – thank you kindly for that. I know we will never forget it. Thank you again for making our special day that much more!”Nicole & Gerry
Other Parts Of My Life
I have been happily married to my husband Michael, celebrating 30 years of marriage this year. We have two sons who are now grown, and my only girl is a very active chocolate Labrador Retriever. My free time is filled outside in the garden, reading, quilting, travelling, family tree research, and golfing.
I am on the Board of Directors for the Wishing Well Wedding And Event Foundation, Canada’s first wish granting foundation that gifts weddings and events to individuals who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. I’m also a proud member of the Calgary Bridal Alliance , Calgary’s Event Core, and the Alberta Funeral Association.
