Bringing ceremony to life
Welcome to my website. I'm Kristine and I'm thrilled you're here.
Choosing the right celebrant for your event is very difficult, so let me make it a bit easier by telling you a bit about myself......
I live in Riddells Creek in the beautiful Macedon Ranges of Victoria with my husband, two kids, crazy blue heeler, rescue dog of unknown species, chickens and the various squatters (in the form of kangaroos, blue tongue lizards, rainbow lorikeets, etc) that come to visit on our 3 acre property.
I worked for several years as a Speech Pathologist, specialising in working with people with a disability. I then became a policy maker with the state government and worked on key projects where I wrote policy, media releases and documents for a broad range of audiences including Ministers of Parliament, senior public servants, allied health professionals, disability support workers, families and people with an intellectual disability. I have also worked educating community members about the National Disability Insurance Scheme and its impact on everyday lives. I have created a podcast called Care Factor - In Conversation with Sara James, which is a very personal account of my experience as a carer, after working in the disability sector for years.
When we made the 'tree change' to start our family I became a qualified marriage and funeral celebrant with the aim of having a greater work/life balance. I thought that being a celebrant would also make the best use of my skills and personality.
I now get to meet amazing people, and participate in their significant life events. It's an absolute honour and privilege. I would love to meet you and see if I can be the right celebrant for you.
