Her love of learning has spanned the years of professional practice; and still continues, with her sights set on a Master’s in Rehabilitation Science. When it comes to leisurely reading her book of choice will be some heavy thick scientific text-book…over a fiction novel any day.

She takes a methodical approach in her exercise programming and looks to restore function, correct patterns, increase strength, enhance performance, condition for sport, and above all improve quality of life! Her clients range from severely injured to high functioning, and everything in between: MVA claims, musculoskeletal conditions, chronic conditions, pre- and post-op orthopaedic conditions, post-stroke rehab, sports injuries and healthy populations.

She holds certifications in: Kinesio-taping, Functional Movement Systems (Level I/II), Active Isolated Stretching (AIS - Mattes Method), Functional Capacity Evaluation (Matheson System), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Level I Exercise / (DNS) Level II Exercise, TRX - Suspension Training, and Trigger Point Performance Therapy.
