How you want to feel is a powerful catalyst for deliberate action.

Several years ago, faced with the decision to return to work after the birth of my second child, I instead took a leap. In the pursuit of what I knew was vital to my purpose I bridged my core desire to help others with my love and passion for fitness and health.
Over the past 15 years, as a Personal Trainer and Exercise Coach, I've helped to improve the lives of others while continuing to transform my own.
After an injury that pulled me out of my 7th marathon I went back to strength training with greater purpose. At the age of 43 I entered my first Figure competition. I moved up to Women's Physique and for the next four years I was dedicated to the art of bodybuilding. I participated in a dozen competitions and at 47 I had the honour of representing Team Canada at the first IFBB World Juniors and Masters Championships in Central America. It was also around that time I began to practice yoga. After almost a year of my independent practice, having experienced the improvements in my flexibility, balance, strength and well being, I was excited to begin yoga teacher training and to be able to share another training modality that offers many benefits.
My transition to each new chapter was intuitively led. Although running differs from weightlifting and time in the gym was different than time on my mat, they each possessed a form of meditation through movement and synchronized breath. They each possessed heart and something that cannot be defined in the parameters of logic. Spirit does not survive there. And more than anything my varied and evolved movement practices carried me through the most challenging times in my personal life.
I continue to follow a lifestyle and mindset that helps me to live on a more conscious level. In learning to take better care of myself and direct my own healing process I completed my Reiki training and Thai Yoga Stretch Therapy. By personally experiencing the extensive benefits and expansive nature of this body work I strive to faciliate healing in a safe, supportive and compassionate manner and I abide by the same priciples as a health coach.
I hope my journey, so far, displays possibility and potential. I hope it offers some inspiration and encouragement to take a leap. Defy the status quo – believe in yourself. Honour how you want to feel, how you want to move, breathe and live and know that when taking action for wellness, you are coming into something where anything becomes possible.

Reiki is a light touch energy based healing modality that helps to reduce stress, boost relaxation and promote healing. Through a series of hand positions, either directly or just above the body, Reiki re-establishes a natural energy flow which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body's innate healing ability.
