Hello I'm Jo,
I have enjoyed public speaking for 30+ years and began practicing my passion for ceremonial work in 2008.
I HAVE RETIRED from performing Weddings and other milestone celebrations.
I continue to offer funeral and memorial celebrations on a limited basis through several funeral homes that I've had the honor of serving since I first began my work as a Celebrant.
I am a graduate of the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, a non-profit educational organization training professionals in the history, writing and performing of ceremonies. 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.
