As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, I provide meaningful, personalized ceremonies for end of life funerals. If you have not experienced this kind of ceremony- ask your friends and family if they have and how it made them feel.  My own experience with personalized funeral ceremonies was so fulfilling- it inspired me to want to bring this experience to others.    You never forget a ceremony like this. The ceremony will likely create a rollercoaster of emotions- sad and bittersweet but we’ll also chuckle at a memory and nod together with a smile.  It will be an inclusive, warm, life-affirming experience for all who are present-  from immediate family and close friends to extended networks and acquaintances- will all feel as part of the ceremony. Please visit these pages to learn more about me, reviews, as well as other services I provide. I also can support other kinds of ceremonies including Retirement, New House/Dwelling, and others- reach out and I am happy to discuss your needs. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you. I can be reached via email ; call/text 484.551.8493  or please visit/chat via social links @thisishowmystoryends


Personalized, meaningful ceremonies for Funerals, Memorials and End of Life.




Includes ceremony structure, elements, and eulogy.  I create and deliver the story of the person that is being remembered and create an important and meaningful experience for all guests. This can be very healing to the friends and family as part of the grieving process.  

Live Ceremonies- Greater Philadelphia Area. Open to Travel.

Scripted Only Ceremonies are also available

Consultation services are available to those who prefer to deliver  your own ceremony but need help putting it together.  

Planning a funeral under short notice can be overwhelming.   From finding the right venue or funeral home, creating a photo tribute, musicians, artists, caterers, and more- I provide referral and booking services. 


Corporate and Community Workshops include:

Death Positive Outlook and Overall Wellness

How to support your grieving co-worker

Can be conducted live or online (for remote).  A personalized, fun ceremony to support your co-worker's transition to retirement. Most people don't realize this is a big transition and a ceremony is so supportive. Each ceremony is unique to the individual.



Thanks for submitting! I will be in touch shortly.



"I was so pleased with how my sister’s ceremony came to life. It was a great depiction of her and we heard so many people state they learned so much about her through the eulogy. You were amazing!  Your calm demeanor and gentle nods to signal the next speaker made the event flow flawlessly. I greatly appreciate all the time, effort and conversation that went into this." -JR

You did so well in signaling the speakers and reading the
Commentaries. You have a soothing and yet vivid speaking voice. - MK

"This reminded me so much of Rose and I keep thinking of the eulogy you wrote for her funeral- even years later. I still think about her ceremony and those little details that you shared was how I still remember her.” - EV
