Our Trainers

We are very particular about our trainers.  Our trainers have been hand picked by Sally Cant and undergo a series of tests before they can train students, and they must have years of experience as a celebrant prior to being able to train. They come from a broad background and have a high level of skill in training. We are thrilled to introduce our trainers to you:

Grad Dip Civil Ceremonies (Monash)

I began this journey in 2003, graduating from Monash University in 2004 with a Grad Dip Arts, Civil Ceremonies, and launched my business in 2005.

Celebrancy is one of the most rewarding roles I've taken on and the next part of the journey is to share this experience as a Trainer and Assessor

with Sally and the Team at the Celebrant's Training College.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
