Q: How did you and Your Wedding Belles get started doing this type of work?
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Theology and most of a Master’s in Counseling. I also have a law degree, which allowed me to do mediation. This is a great skill to work with in life coaching and couples coaching. I have years and years of training and experience in crisis intervention, counseling and coaching during my career in social services. I am currently a life, relationship and spiritual coach, teacher and speaker.
After several of my clients referred me to their friends to officiate weddings, I decided to add that to my menu of services as well. After having performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies, I still find every couple and love story unique and am inspiried by each couples’ commitment to share a life together.
When my sister, Katie, and then my two best friends, Jill and Cindy, saw how much fun I was having and how inspiring it was to be involved in such a magical moment in couples’ lives, we decided to form Your Wedding Belles. Sharing this work with these strong, engaging and creative women has been such a blessing.
