I grew up in a big family on the East Coast of England. After obtaining a Law Degree from Oxford University, I was a Family Law attorney in London for over a decade, specializing in Child Protection and International Child Abduction. 

I met my husband whilst traveling in Kenya in 2002 and moved to Canada shortly thereafter. We have 3 daughters - 2
still at home and growing up fast! Once in Canada, I began a different career (better suited to my growing family) attaining certification with the Yoga Association of Alberta, and going on to teach several yoga and mindfulness classes
a week to all age groups, from toddlers to seniors. I am on the Board of Directors at the Yoga YARD in Red Deer. When I'm not working or chauffeuring my daughters around, I love to ski (both types) in the winter, garden in the summer, and
bake bread (all year round!). We have also just started keeping bees on the acreage, which is really exciting!

When a Marriage Commissioner appointment came up in Red Deer County I jumped at the opportunity as this was
a job I had dreamed of for many years! I received my appointment in October of 2018.

As a result of both my legal career and my current job as a yoga teacher, I have nearly three decades worth of public speaking experience, and of listening to my clients/students in order to ascertain what their needs are. I am comfortable dealing with people from all walks of life, and think quickly on my feet. Providing the highest caliber of customer service is of the utmost importance to me, as is making sure that couples are as relaxed as possible heading into their big day. Rest assured that the planning of your wedding ceremony and all of the legalities are in safe hands - it should be a stress-free and magical day, and hopefully we will share some laughter along the way!
