About Me

I am qualified by the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants to take funerals, weddings, civil partnerships and all other associated ceremonies. I also hold the National Certificate in UK Celebrancy.

I was a teacher in an Upper School for ten years before moving into Higher Education. I became a Principal Lecturer in English Literature where I taught university students in a culturally diverse University. I specialised in poetry and postcolonial writing.

I am now semi-retired and live in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, with my husband and Springer Spaniel. My two step-daughters live in France and Canada.

I have a broad faith and been a church goer, on and off, for most of my life.

Whether we are celebrating a birth, a marriage or a death, it is all about love in the end!
