I grew up in Fort Saskatchewan where I was an avid figure skater for many years before I began coaching with Skate Canada in the Can Skate division. I moved to Lloydminster in 2008 and have been a part of the community ever since.
At the age of 19 I started working in a nursing home. While I loved doing care work and found a passion for helping people…kind to my body it was not. After four years, I developed quadruple hernias from the heavy workload and was experiencing daily lower back and abdominal pain. I knew something needed to change. So I began my journey with Pilates as a student of To The Core in September 2016. I had no idea Pilates could help me so much and that proper movement, guided by knowledgeable instructors could reduce my pain so effectively giving me back control of my body.
WHERE HAD THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE AND HOW COULD I LEARN MORE TO START HELPING OTHERS?
After two years as a student I decided to take the STOTT® Intensive Matwork training and became an instructor in August 2018. I want to help people live their best life well into their years and find confidence in things they didn’t think they could do, or haven’t been able to for a long time. That is my To The Core mission. In pursuit of this, I have also taken the functional fascia movement course, and am currently learning other pieces of equipment.
I plan to continue my education with the Reformer, Injuries and Special Populations course this year. Giving me more tools to better assist my clients reach their goals of strength, better movement, and quality of life.
