First as family member (she is Barbara’s daughter) and then as business consultant, Sarah is prepping to take the helm of the new findaJP/JPus. Founder of paellapans.com, importer of specialty cookware from Spain, she was previously a reporter (The New York Times) and editor (Fine Cooking magazine). Married in 1997 by a Justice of the Peace in her parents’ Connecticut backyard, Sarah lives in New York with her Spanish husband and two daughters.
Chief Cook and Bottle Washer
Initially a mainframe programmer, Barbara glommed onto HTML when personal computers arrived, taught it at a community college, and used it to build the first JPus and findaJP websites. Barbara cherishes all the friends she has made from CT, MA, NH and VT via the JP Association. With the launch of the new findajp/JPus, she will stay in touch with members, keep the website going, and encourage JPs in other states to join the Association.
Education & Program Director
When she signed up to attend the first JP Conference in 2005, Bettie volunteered to make nametags for everyone. The next year, she ran a workshop on appropriate pay for JPs, aptly named “Are You Worth the Broccoli?” In subsequent years, she enticed renowned wedding planner Peter Merry to speak at our conference. She launched the Association’s Facebook group, where she is always a source of wedding wisdom. On Facebook and in person, Bettie is a mentor, friend and support to JPs everywhere.
When Cindy officiated her first wedding, she experienced a familiar feeling. Prior to becoming a JP, she assisted with many births as an obstetrics nurse, and soon realized that the feeling was the same: a humbling sense of honor to be a part of a life-changing event in a couple’s journey. She was hooked. Today she combines her love of writing with her desire to help couples by contributing a monthly blog post that provides tips and trends on relevant ceremony topics. Cindy lives and works on the beautiful NH seacoast with her husband Rick and Bichon Poo Maddison.
