Who is Patricia Jamieson?
Hello, I'm Patricia Jamieson, I live on Phillip Island, moving here in 1988. I was an aromatherapist for over 20 years, it was a role that I absolutely loved, there wasn't a day where I wasn't excited to be going to work.
January 2015, I sold my business, Aromatherapy in Action. One of my therapists told me I would make a great celebrant, but I put that thought away as I hadn't ever seen myself in that role even though I had delivered the eulogy for my little brother a few years earlier.
After trying a few things, and none of them bringing me the passion I was looking for, I returned to study to gain my Certificate IV in Marriage Celebrancy in 2017.
In August that year I delivered my first funeral service. It was extremely special, as it was for the mother of a dear friend of mine. After the funeral I went to a coffee shop, sat with myself, and tuned in to how I was feeling... it was like a rush of pure love and emotion as I felt that beautiful heart opening that I hadn't felt since giving up my massage practice.
I knew from that moment that being a funeral celebrant was what I was meant to be, I had found the role in life I was looking for.
