Ava Chappell is a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant® who loves connecting with people in all stages and passages of life. Raised Jewish, Ava looked forward to including those traditions in her interfaith wedding ceremony.  She found no rabbis who would perform a mixed ceremony in Colorado and borrowing someone else’s ritual felt inauthentic, leaving her with few options.  The experience set her out to find a way to bring into ceremony each individual’s belief systems and values. Working as a Celebrant sparks an intrinsic desire in her to help others, to listen between the lines, to help articulate and create a vision and make it reality. With a diverse wealth of life-experience, including 25 years in the world of business, Ava brings a high degree of professionalism, timeliness, and integrity to the table.
