About Me

Experience

Worked for 14 years in both a gym and the homes of clients as well as outdoor venues. As of 2020, this has changed to Clients' homes and virtual. I have previously worked in hospital settings, long terms care, retirement residences and physiotherapy clinics. In doing so, I have worked with cancer survivors, clients with Parkinsons; recovering from stroke or cardiac issues. Currently I work primarily with pre/post orthopaedic surgery clients as well as general health and specific fitness goals.*

Professional Bio
*Although I have worked in an office setting, my preference is to work one on one with people. I love being able to make a positive difference in clients lives to enhance their function and quality of life.
