ABOUT

For the past 20 years I have been working in the health industry. I have had work opportunities in Canada and abroad as a personal trainer, yoga & pilates instructor, and facilitated yoga & meditation programs for all ages. Next I continued studies in Massage Therapy and Manual Osteopathy at the Canadian College of Osteopathy (CCO). I have enjoyed working at multi-disciplinary clinics as well as having a home based clinical practice where I work from today.

SPORTS:

I have always found that 'movement is thy medicine' and have lived an active and healthy lifestyle skating, swimming, cycling, weight training, hiking, pilates, and yoga which have all connected me to many diverse people.  

 

Additionally, I was born with bilateral club feet and a leg length discrepancy (LLD). I have a lifetime of experience with what can be helpful for adapting with club feet and a LLD. Structural, functional and rehabilitation options are many for footwear, shoe modifications, orthotics, and braces. Email me anytime for information that I may be able to help you with.

In 2016 I was classified as a C5-Paracyclist and when I overcome recent neurological injuries, I intend to return to training and racing.

HEALTHY EATING.

Over the years I have learned about the power of eating a healthy diet and what can happen when we don't. Healthy eating can help us sustain energy levels, regulate hormones, reduce pain and inflammation, and optimize brain function. It's miraculous to feel the immediate positive changes when we cut-out sugar, alcohol, and processed foods for regular cleanses. 

 

Listen to your body and see what foods help or hinder your energy levels. Referring to Dieticians, Nutritionists, and Naturopaths for guidance can also be a healthy option when struggling with some side-effects of digestive issues such as: bloating, lack of energy, pain, or inflammation.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" (Hippocrates).
