My passion for health and wellness reaches all the way back to my grade ten physical education class. In high school, I was a typical teenage girl - out of shape. But, in grade ten my best friend and I signed up for a specialized Phys-Ed class called “Fit for Life”.  Only seven girls signed up for the class, so the teacher was able to work slightly outside of the curriculum.  We did weight training, running, cycling, yoga, and all kinds of fitness related activities. Even with little agility or speed, I absolutely loved it. This course showed me the other side of fitness; I felt empowered because I could actually do the activities, and I could see improvement in my abilities over such a short period of time. From that day forward I have embraced an active lifestyle, and felt inspired to show others how easy fitness can be when you can find something that works for you. From there, I became a certified group fitness instructor, certified personal trainer, certified aqua fitness instructor, hip hop dance instructor, and most recently have become certified as a yoga instructor. Yoga has been a deep part of my physical and spiritual practice for close to 15 years now. At the age of twenty five I attended the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and obtained my diploma in Natural Nutrition, as well as the "Registered Holistic Nutritionist" designation. The program was so life altering that I bought the school. I am currently the Branch Manager, and owner, of the Ottawa Branch of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I also own a business called Resort to Wellness, where I travel around the world training resort staff in health and wellness.  My most recent work was in Vietnam, at one of the top 100 resorts in the world. I specialize in motivational workshops on health and wellness, and have presented to numerous organizations, corporations, and schools. I have worked in wellness clinics, schools, chiropractic clinics, and within the corporate sector as a nutritional consultant for over a decade.
