About Me

About Me

From a young age, I've had a passion for helping people make positive changes in their lives. I pursued an Applied Justice Studies Degree program and landed a job as a Probation Officer, where I had the opportunity to work with diverse groups of people who were struggling to cope with various challenges in their lives.

In 2009, I pursued my passion for fitness while teaching as a hobby, blending my love for running, yoga, and group fitness. My dream was to leave my career in the justice system and open my own fitness studio, but the transition was tough.

Despite the challenges, I took a leap of faith and opened Barre Body Studios in Calgary in 2012. I created my brand, fitness program, and teacher training program, working with many wonderful people along the way.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, maintaining a studio space became challenging, and I made the decision to leave that chapter behind and enrolled in Integrative Somatic Therapy training with Ratha Chek at the Mind Soul Body Healing Centre in Vancouver, B.C.

Now, as a trained Integrative Somatic Therapy Practitioner, I've blended 20 years of experience working with people to offer support, guidance, and healing to those seeking freedom. Through guided mindfulness, movement, breath work, and resourcing, I help people connect with their internal environment and relieve emotional and physical stress from their bodies.

I still believe that we all have the power to create lasting changes and shed layers at any stage in our lives. I'm passionate about helping people achieve this, and I hope to inspire and empower others to pursue their dreams, no matter how daunting the journey may seem.
