In the Summer of 2009, I made the decision to become Ordained. I had long know that I wished to perform weddings, commitments, and other rites; Becoming Ordained was the first step down a wonderfully long road to being the Pagan Minister I am today.
Growing up as a Queer and nonbinary person in the Catholic church caused a great deal of religious trauma that pushed me away from Spirit. Through the years since, I dabbled in all religions I could and discovered elements of each that brought wisdom to me. I considered myself non-theistic but practiced Taoist and Buddhist philosophies that brought great joy and beauty into my life. My family and friends recognized me as someone capable of sharing that joy and beauty and so I began to offer counsel to those in need as well as officiating a number of weddings and ceremonies.
On Christmas Eve of 2016, my little brother passed away suddenly and tragically. I had spiraled into a dark place that left me bereft and without hope. In order to make sense of my loss and to find meaning, I once again turned my eyes to the Spiritual. I was invited to be witness to a Sabbat Ritual for a local Coven and in that darkened room, surrounded by sweet incense smoke and shadows, my eyes were truly opened. Where there was once confusion and loss, there sparked hope and wonder. I spent the next few years pouring myself into my crafting of ritual tools as well as endless reading of books about Pagan History, Magic, Culture, and Ceremony. I began a regular practice of worship with the Goddess Hekate and Allfather Odin then through consistent Ceremony and daily practice, I have had numerous transcendent experiences that have taken my grief and transformed it into strength and love.
Now, I offer my services as a Pagan Minister, performing Ceremony of all kinds - every important moment from birth to passing.
