Biography

In my youth, I was involved in competitive dance and gymnastics and had a great love for climbing trees and the outdoors in general.  So it seems I was destined to discover rock climbing, which combined my interests into one tidy passion!  As a young adult, climbing consumed my every thought and I eventually packed my Chevy Sprint with necessities and my cat and I moved to Canmore where I pursued climbing in every way I could.

Fast forward about 15 years after retiring from the climbing world and I found myself working as a Physio Aide at Sherwood Park Sports Physiotherapy.  Having the good fortune to help clients as well as learn from the amazing staff of trainers and physiotherapists, I eventually wanted to offer more and decided to return to school in 2017 to attend Makami’s 3000-hour Advanced Massage Therapy Program.  Returning to school was a fascinating journey and I was honoured with the Champions of Makami Award for top marks in my class and nominated to be a mentor for other students.

Having personally benefited from massage therapy treatments during times of intense training and after various accidents and injuries, I am passionate about helping others feel their best so they can return to, or simply continue to, enjoy their passions.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my son and our two dogs, doing various physical activities and learning to hone my skills painting.
