Mom, sister, grandmother, spouse. At the end of the day, all that matters is that I did my best for each person who crossed my path that day. Whether writing a new wedding ceremony, editing a gem of a story someone else wrote, dissecting a new provision of a law, or making a delicious dinner menu – each day presents its own challenges in which to make someone happy. That is my daily goal.
I am the quintessential right-left brainer! I love my job of translating statute into its specific compliance requirements, as much as I enjoy turning a handful of old broaches into a bridal bouquet; or painstakingly wiring lights into the roses on a wedding cake. Academic nerd and artistic creator, woven into a single person who bores easily and is constantly finding a new challenge to master.
Over the course of my financial services (banking, investments, insurance, mortgages, and compliance) career, I always maintained an “after-hours” activity to feed the creative beast. From designing wedding gowns, creating breathtaking cakes and bouquets, capturing it all in spectacular photography, making that fairy tale day a reality for couples is what continued to drive my insatiable hunger to create something unimaginable.
I learned the trade of wedding officiating from the best. He is over in that other column on the far right and to this day remains my mentor, best friend, and spit-brother. His South Jersey Officiants is consistently voted The Best Of The Knot and Wedding Wire. There is a reason for that, and P3 brings that level of expertise to Oregon. The best officiant in New Jersey and the tri-state area is an ongoing mentor and coach for P3 Wedding Services.
But weddings and sparkly things is not all I do. From National Notary Association’s Notary of the Year (2011), through providing undisputed expert testimony (fraud, and notary law and process), to analyzing thousands of financial services laws, to inspiring hundreds of women through inspirational workshops (The Career Wardrobe, Philadelphia PA), and writing/editing financial education newsletters, to hand-beading a wedding gown, or frosting a cake. Every client earns laser focus and attention because at the end of the day, keeping you happy is ultimately my job.
