These are the parts of me that will serve you well as your Officiant:
direct, compassionate, sometimes funny, smart, open, focussed, willing, dedicated, quick, articulate, real, observant, expressive, attentive, intentional, present, emotionally brave, feisty when needed, and resilient.
My professional background:
I am a social worker and ally that has developed and facilitated training to 100s of people on sensitive topics, worked alongside people in some of their most challenging and joyful moments, volunteered to teach kindergarten children about empathy, and adults how to read.
Loves of mine include my people, my furry companions, my books, warm olives, my dream of being a farmer, birds, clouds, inclusion, singing loudly, 'dancing it out', breathing, silence, growing food (with small successes), devouring thalis, showing up for people, baking sourdough pizza and bread, listening deeply, and sharing food .
