About the Author
I can honestly say that no two ceremonies were alike as no two couples were alike. Each was sweet and moving and at times wacky in its own special way!
In addition to being a wedding officiant, I’m an interpersonal communication skills coach. I help people “find their voice” so they can communicate with confidence and forge healthy, successful relationships, both professional and personal.
I especially enjoy teaching communication courses at UCLA Extension and I get a kick out of writing a weekly column on relationships and communication for The Tolucan Times.
