I trained as a celebrant with the humanist chaplain of Stanford University as well as the AHA Center for Education. My chaplaincy clinical training was at Beaumont Hospital in Michigan and I am completing a Master of Divinity program at Meadville Lombard Theological School. I have officiated many ceremonies in Los Angeles, Savannah, and Detroit and am a WeddingWire Preferred Vendor. I am on the Board of Directors of the Humanist Society, and a contributing writer to humanist and other publications.
I am a chaplain and ex-minister who has experience performing marriages and funerals. I have familiarity with, and am also available to counsel those who are facing death, leaving religion, or struggling with addiction. I also love speaking about Religion, Philosophy, and Atheism and my path leaving the ministry.
