I ditched deadlines for 'I do's when I left my media career for something that better suited my love for people, celebrations and endless admin. In making the switch, I brought more than 15 years' professional writing, storytelling, social media and digital marketing experience with me, having worked with brands such as David Jones, delicious. magazine and New Idea Food, as well as hundreds of small business owners. I use the client-first mentality I've been teaching the big guys in my own celebrant practice, crafting dynamic experiences based on my couples' needs. My natural nerdiness means I'm often found poring over the Marriage Act and figuring out new ways to use technology to make my business more efficient. Away from the arbour, I like to eat dumplings, re-watch Parks & Recreation (again), and take way too many photos of my two rescue cats, Pancake and Barney.
