I have been an athlete since I was a child and continue to live a very active lifestyle including running, cycling, skiing, hiking, and of course lots of Pilates. I never dreamed I would make my career and passion from teaching health and good movement to people.
I completed a Business Administration Degree in 2001 and was on my way to a job in another field. I won National and international awards in entrepreneurship before having children, and then settled down to a slower paced career.
I teach Pilates because I believe in the Method and know from personal experience the incredible things it can do for the body. I was born and raised in Ottawa (grew up with the Trudeau kids!) I have lived in Manitoba, Alberta and now I call New Brunswick home.
I qualified in 2003 with a first-class honours degree in Sports Rehabilitation and Injury Prevention. This involved intensely studying anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology and kinesiology. We also studied sports medicine, nutrition and sports psychology, encouraging a focused holistic approach.
"If at the age of 30, you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60, you are supple and strong, then you are young." Joseph Pilates
I am working on becoming young!! I can attest to the method...it works! As well as Pilates I love St. Marten in February and the Saint John River on a sailboat in summer.
I served for 14 years as a Mechanical Engineer for the Royal Canadian Navy before deciding I needed a change. Physical Fitness has always been important for me: I was a gymnast and now enjoy swimming, running, rock-climbing, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.
