• I value the power of listening and the connection of storytelling.
  • I dedicate myself to thoughtfully helping others navigate the experience of ceremony, as well as creating and performing distinct and memorable services.
  • I strive to provide a service that recognizes the unique personalities of my clients, being sensitive to their needs, wishes, values, philosophical and spiritual beliefs, and cultural backgrounds.

Professionally trained by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, I am certified to conduct weddings, funerals and memorials. I also received training in working with and creating ceremonies for the LBGT community.

Certified Life-Cycle Celebrants are rigorously schooled in the art of ritual, ceremony, world and cultural traditions, mythology, ceremonial writing and speaking.


Born in Kansas, raised in Denver, and a graduate from the University of Denver, Jean also lived for a time in northern California and New Mexico before returning to the blue skies of Colorado. You can always find her on a tennis court, skiing or hiking the mountain trails with her husband and rescued Dalmatian. Although she lives in the metro-Denver area, she is willing to perform ceremonies at a variety of distinctive and beautiful venue locations in Colorado or New Mexico: backyards, parks, mountain meadow, ski hills, ranches, or resorts.

Before finding her passion in working with couples and families to create and perform ceremonies, Jean was privileged to be a mediator, facilitator, coach, and teacher. When Jean discovered the Life-Cycle Institute, she became compassionate about creating ceremonies as an extension of her life’s work.
