I have a Bachelor of Physical Education with a Concentration in Sports Performance from the University of Alberta. I then continued my education and became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and a Certified Athletic Therapist from Mount Royal University. I’ve worked with a wide range of sports teams as a student athletic therapist. They include the highly successful U of A wrestling teams, U of A Men’s hockey and football teams, the SAIT Men’s hockey team, as well as all levels of recreational athletes. After competitively participating in hockey, I found my muse by running, rock/ice climbing, hiking, and ski touring in the mountains. Competing in trail ultramarathons at the 50 km, 50-mile, 100-mile distances keeps me outside and in the mountains as much as possible.
I believe that physical activity and movement are integral to maintaining balance in life and I strive to enable others to achieve their personal peak performance in sport, physical activity, and health. I do this through an assortment of muscle energy techniques, movement-based exercise progressions and the development of periodized rehabilitation and training programs combined with creative collaborative thinking. Through these, my goal is to allow people to balance their physical activity, training budget and maximize their athletic performance.
