Certified Pilates Instructor
"I was born and raised in the prairie city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. After receiving my Bachelor of Commerce degree, my husband's work moved us around to various Canadian cities, before landing us in beautiful Kelowna in December 2013.
I joined the NeuMovement Kelowna studio as a client in 2017. After staying home to raise my son, I was looking for a postpartum exercise program that utilized safe movement, while achieving overall body conditioning. I found Neu Pilates to be the perfect formula for doing just that, while also allowing for increased awareness and compassion for my own physical and mental health journey.
As my son was getting ready to enter Kindergarten, I knew that returning to a stressful job within an office environment was not for me anymore. And after completing almost 200 hours of personal practice, I knew I wanted to share the gifts that Pilates has to offer with those around me. I completed the Neu Pilates teacher training for Mat and Anatomy, Reformer equipment, as well as Spring, Tower and Cadillac, and I became a Certified Neu Pilates Instructor. I work with NeuMovement clients privately or in conjunction with their NeuMovement physiotherapist's rehabilitation plan. I also instruct group equipment, as well as drop-in mat pilates and springboard classes. And you can find me at both the Glenmore and Pandosy Kelowna locations!
When I'm not in the studio, you might find me spending time with my husband and son, hiking one of our beautiful local trails with my dog George, or spending time with my parents who live right up the street from us!
Breathe. Alignment. Body Control. Centering. Pilates is for every mind and everybody. I can’t wait to hold space for you while you explore your journey.
