ABOUT

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

SPORTS:

I have always found that 'movement is thy medicine'. I have lived an active and healthy lifestyle swimming, cycling, skating, skiing, snowboarding, weight training, hiking, pilates, and yoga. These activities have helped foster new friendships and brought me to different countries where I could learn about new cultures.

 

I was also born with bilateral club feet and a leg length discrepancy (LLD). I have a lifetime of experience with helpful rehab techniques for club feet and a leg length imbalance. There are many structural, functional, and rehabilitation options for footwear, lifts, shoe modifications, orthotics, braces, and therapy. Email me for more information.

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 experimented with various diets and learned what can happen when we don't. Healthy eating can help us sustain energy levels, regulate hormones, reduce pain and inflammation (or trigger them), and optimize brain function. The positive changes that occur when we cut-out sugar, alcohol, and processed foods for regular cleanses are miraculous. So listen to your body and see what foods help or hinder your energy levels.

 

Referring to Dieticians, Nutritionists, Naturopaths and food testing can also be a good option when struggling with side-effects such as: bloating, brain fog, fatigue, pain, and inflammation.
