Welcome to my updated website!
Hi! I'm Jo.
I have enjoyed public speaking for 30 years and began practicing my passion for ceremonial work in 2008.
When I say "I love what I do" it is not a marketing ploy or casual tag line. I have a true passion for the work that I feel so fortunate to do. I believe that each human being is unique and every person's story is a story that deserves telling and celebrating. I have a special passion for creating original rituals and ceremony elements based on the interests, activities, beliefs and personalities of my clients.
I am a graduate of the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, a non-profit educational organization training professionals in the history, writing and performing of ceremonies.
As a Certified LifeCycle Celebrant™ I am not affiliated with any faith community or religious doctrine. It is my honor to create ceremonies based on the beliefs of each and every client whether religious, spiritual or secular.
I hold a Master of Science Degree from the University of New Hampshire and was a pediatric speech pathologist for over a decade in the seacoast area of NH and Southern Maine.
As a long-time ally and advocate to the LGBTQ community I am committed to serving all people with respect and dignity.
I look forward to celebrating with you.
