What is Movement Coaching?
To move is to be human.
The ultimate goal of movement coaching is to help you become a better "mover". Being a better mover means less pain and more energy. Movement coaching builds upon the traditional foundation of strength, power, and endurance and expands beyond to include mobility, play, balance, breath-work, and environmental engineering.
I offer several coaching options to suit your individual or group needs

Most people know me as a personal trainer, but my career began as a Registered Nurse. I have worked in a variety of settings including Trauma, Integrative Cancer, and Long-Term Care. My experience as a nurse exposed me to our current reactive health-care system. It felt like I was constantly putting out fires rather than preventing them from starting in the first place. I owe it to this experience for helping me recognize my passion for preventative health care.
While I was working at the hospital, I began to develop pain in my feet, which drove me to learn about how I could fix them. After attending a seminar through The Foot Collective, I started to implement small changes into my life that ultimately eliminated my foot pain. I left my job at the hospital to search for answers. If I could treat my own pain, I felt that I could make a difference in helping others with their chronic pain and work to help people prevent illness and injury.
I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing and I am currently still working as a Registered Nurse at the Centre for Health Innovation in Ottawa.
Some of my certifications include:
Sports Performance Institute Level 2 Trainer
Certified Foot Nerd with The Foot Collective
Animal Flow Level 1 Instructor
The Ottawa School of Thai Massage Certificate
Functional Movement Techniques Cupping Certification
I continue to find opportunities to challenge myself and learn with an open mind. I’m excited to share my experience with my community and be a leader in preventative health.
