The Celebrant School is delighted to offer personalised Buddy Vocal Coaching sessions with voice and presentation coach, Christina Mackay.

The total investment shared between the two celebrant participants is $517.50 incl GST (see Terms and Conditions below)

Christina has experience as a speech and drama teacher, theatre practitioner, and celebrant and in 2011 she was awarded the HER Marlborough Business Woman of the Year for her coffee roasting business. She holds a Speech NZ Diploma in Professional Speaking (with Distinction) and a Certificate in Celebrant Studies.
