About Me

Experience

I have been a practicing kinesiologist and business owner for over 30 years. My favourite clients are​ people over 65 with multiple co-morbidities and chronic autoimmune conditions. In fact, the more complex my clients’ histories and rehabilitation journeys the better! I now combine movement with nutrition to help my clients live their best life.
Professional Bio
I was SO intrigued by how we were able to do a somersault - that I became a kinesiologist! As a final assignment for my physical education and health class in my last year of high school, I had to record and analyze all the steps involved in doing a somersault.

University applications were due in days. I was sweating. What was I going to study in university? Luckily this assignment created so much curiousity that I found my calling! My teacher told me that movement analysis was called biomechanics and that I should study at the University of Waterloo. So I did ????
