About Me

I was born and raised in Huntsville, AL. I grew up in the Southern Baptist church, and although I eventually grew away from that faith, I do look fondly upon my religious upbringing and appreciate the opportunity to experience a spiritual lifestyle as a child. As a young teenager, my experiences in a normal, state funded, world history class led me to research the history of religion throughout the ages and eventually to the discovery of the new age reconstruction movement in earth based spirituality. I found great comfort in celebrating the changing of the seasons instead of celebrating what I now perceived as mythical tales as if they were historical truths. It made much more sense to me, that if I was going to pay respect to anything at all, it should be this amazing world we live in, that literally sustains our life. As I grew to adulthood and became involved with the pagan community, as well as the atheist community, I realized there was a distinct lack of legal wedding officiants available. I saw many a friend give-in to family and outside pressures to have a church-wedding, even though their personal beliefs were entirely different. It became clear to me that this hole needed to be filled; people needed to be able to express their own inner-self, especially in such an important life event. I decided that I would take it upon myself to study and provide this service, that I would make myself available for any type of alternate ceremony that anyone needed, regardless of their affiliations - including doing ceremonies cleverly disguised as church weddings [something many of my friends attempted to do to try and keep the peace] In my mid-twenties I began and completed a year-long course of study to become legally ordained with the Correllian Nativist church. With certificate in hand, I embarked upon my journey and what a wonderfully fulfilling one it has been! If you feel that I may be the right officiant for your wedding needs, please email or call me, I would love to talk to you!
