I first began my journey of mind-body connection through the practice of yoga. From this practice, I came to understand that we all crave movement and expression of the body, no matter our physical state. This I believe you can accomplish by surrendering to the unknown all while still having fun. I completed my first yoga teacher training in Costa Rica (200 RYT) in 2011. Wanting to marry my love of travel and passion for teaching, I took my practice to Europe and the UK where I taught for 3 years before returning back to Canada. In Croatia, I began studying for my second yoga Teacher Training (500 RYT).

It was through my private yoga clients that I began to see the value in nourishing the body not only through movement, but also with proper nutrition. I was inspired by the changes I saw in my clients who had began a healthy relationship with their body and the food they put into it. Not only were the physical transformations inspiring, but the mental evolution and balance I saw was truly something else. It was then that I was inspired to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN). As an RHN, I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all diet model, so I cater my practice specifically to my clients’ needs. I also hold an H.BA from McMaster University, majoring in Mass Media and Performance Arts Communications with a minor in Sociology, and a Post-Graduate degree in Sport and Event Marketing from George Brown College.
