Although I have been a Justice of the Peace in Massachusetts since 1992, and have officiated at
hundreds of weddings, every wedding is different, exciting and new.  I will travel within Massachusetts
and with sufficient advance notice, I will officiate at other states.  

My background is in education and gerontology.  I hold a Real Estate license   As an educator, I taught
many subjects, but being a guidance counselor was my favorite.  As a volunteer, with a hospice program
I am a friendly face at the end of active living.  As a volunteer at Restore, a resale store for Habitat for
Humanity, I help customers with their purchases of articles perfect for their home.  In real estate, I match
clients with the home or apartment that matches their needs and budget.

Interacting with people on so many levels, adds to my ability to design the perfect ceremony for couples
of varying backgrounds, interests, and goals.  When the couple has guests who do not speak English, I
often have a translator repeat what I have said.  

On a personal level, I have 4 grown children, three of whom live in Texas.  I visit them as often as I can
and certainly for any event that requires the presence of a grandmother.  With four grandchildren in
Texas, and three in Massachusetts, I have lots of opportunities to have fun doing things the kids will
enjoy.  Sometimes I have more fun than they do.

That's a bit about me.  When you ask me to officiate at your wedding, I will ask about you.  To create a
ceremony just for you, I need to know how you met, what you enjoy doing, and what you especially like.  
I might ask about your family and your special talents.

I schedule only as many weddings as can have my full attention.   Every wedding is different and every
wedding is very special.  Your wedding will have my full attention.
