As a youth competitive soccer player in Canada, my interest in health and fitness started at an early age. Unfortunately, two ACL surgeries in my twenties required me to reassess my personal goals and shift my focus away from the soccer field. I found resistance training provided me an outlet in my quest to build strength and feel strong. In my thirties I was a stay at home mom. As my daughter reached school age, I decided to further pursue my interest in fitness by attaining my Personal Training Certification through the International Sports Sciences Association. I continued on this path, completing a certification in both Exercise Therapy and Nutrition as well. It wasn’t until my thirties, when a Physical Therapist used Pilates to treat my back pain due to scoliosis, that I better understood the true importance of alignment, breath, and core strength. Now in my forties, I’m excited to work with you in your Pilates practice, and look forward to being a part of your unique health and wellness journey.
