Dedicated to honoring and celebrating the magic of our unique stories and experiences.

"I am on a mission to set a standard – where we all have the freedom and confidence to tell our stories while showing up authentically for ourselves, our families, and our communities."


As business owners, we often wear many hats and I have a closet full of the most diverse, attention-grabbing, and colorful hats and headwraps! I am a Professional Wedding Officiant, Pre-Marital Coach, author, industry Educator, Spiritual Advisor, and business owner (not to mention, a wife and homeschooling mama). As shared in my debut book, Laughter at the Altar, all of the things I do are connected in love and celebration; love for self, love for others, love for family and friends, and love for our divine experiences. It is my goal that all of my work allows my communities to experience love, support, and genuine acceptance of their true selves. 

Wedding Officiant. Pre-Marital Coach. Author. Entrepreneur.

Inspiring, insightful, and relatable, Laughter at the Altar reminds us of the power in the wedding ceremony and the sanctity that it holds.
This book is a guide and an intentional tool, for couples and wedding professionals, towards understanding the ritual of weddings and how to create deeply meaningful moments at the wedding altar.
