As a former competitive athlete and hiking enthusiast, I learned to push my body to it's limits - not always safely. First it was an ankle sprain, then another ankle sprain (no big deal right?). Then I suffered a devastating knee injury that required surgery and took me away from playing my favorite sport soccer. Not being able to do what you enjoy because of an injury or surgery is life changing. Ever heard someone say, "My body has never been the same since..."?
My years spent at Queen's University studying about the Human Mind, Body and Culture we live in gave me amazing knowledge & appreciation for the complexities of human movement!
After graduating in 2005, I have worked with a variety of people of all ages & abilities improve their functional movements with corrective exercise programming. There is nothing more rewarding when your clients experience less pain, improved function & strength. I love hearing stories of how the exercises are impacting their lives.
In 2004, I graduated with an Honours Kinesiology degree from Western University and immediately started working with clients with a wide range of injuries, conditions and fitness levels adapting exercise to each individual’s goals and abilities.
Growing up I was always active competing in track, synchronized skating and playing on many team sports. It was my own muscular imbalances and back pain from scoliosis that led me to discover pilates and yoga and complete the Stott Pilates matwork certification.
I like to focus on more natural movements with a mind body connection. This improves strength, breathing patterns and ease of movement in everyday activities and sports. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and helping people move well and move more often.
