I am obsessed with the TV show Supernatural but my love for Joss Whedon's Firefly reigns supreme (space western? yes please!). Attending the Ontario Academy of Progressive Osteopathy and working full time leaves me with limited time for much else. Actually, that's not true because there's always time for Pinterest.  

Additionally a few years back I decided to expand my horizons and had a wonderfully patient friend teach me how to knit.  One day I may grow beyond my repertoire of scarves, but until then many scarves will be made.

More of a bookworm than an athlete growing up, I discovered the Athletic Centre at the University of Guelph where I earned my Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Applied Human Nutrition and it sparked my passion to pursue health with a preventative approach. This led me to George Brown College where I attained my Fitness and Lifestyle Management diploma to help others in their pursuit of a stronger, healthier, better version of themselves.


Dedicating myself to my clients' wellbeing is what drives me to continue to learn and evolve. I have taken numerous trips throughout the United States to pursue my passion through on-going education. From Oklahoma City to earn the highly regarded Resistance Training Specialist mastery certification, to Denver to continue my Muscle Activation Techniques skillset. I have also attended a number of cadaver labs in Pittsburgh to reinforce my understanding of anatomic structure and mechanics.

I am currently a Diploma of Osteopathy Candidate at the Ontario Academy of Progressive Osteopathy in Toronto. Still a strong proponent of appropriate strength training, I've come to realize we are multifaceted complex systems that necessitate a more holistic approach towards our health and well being.  


As the lead supervisor at the student clinic, I am passionate about sharing my expertise in Osteopathy, Anatomy, and Physiology, My diverse studies in Manual Osteopathic modalities include: Cranial Osteopathy, Visceral therapy, Functional Neurology, Mitchell Muscle Energy Technique, Embryology, Pottengers, Bennetts, Chapmans Neuro-Reflex, Biodynamics, and Evost Compex Physiology. 


I recently had the pleasure of studying under the expert teachings of Certified Athletic Trainer and Integrative Functional Manual Therapist Lino Cedros and take his Manual Approach to Women's Health in Sacramento. Currently, I am immersing myself in the phases of Biodynamics, a postgraduate program in American Osteopathy.


My Capstone Project focuses on exploring The Effects of Rib Raising on the Sympathetic Nervous System, reflecting my dedication to understanding and addressing long-term effects of hyper sympathetic states such as chronic stress.

I have a special interest in women's health and the holistic approach to nurturing the nervous system. I am here to guide and support everyone on their journey to optimal health and vitality.

You are a unique individual.  This means everything you've done and experienced up until now has contributed to the state of your structure (i.e. the fit of your joints, shape of your bones, the quality of your fascia). The idiosyncracies of your particular hips/shoulders/spine/feet need to be taken into consideration before any weight (even 'just' body weight) is forced through your joints. Optimizing these forces will have a joint preserving effect and will help make them last the lifetime you need them to.


There is a joint cost involved with any activity you do.  Sometimes that cost is minimal or it can be great leading to unnecessary wear. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Addressing imbalances before you start and incorporating the appropriate homework of exercises can make all the difference in maintaining a strong and pain-free life.
