How I got here...
Growing up on the North Shore with the mountains and ocean on my doorstep gave me a love of all things natural and holistic. I’m always looking for more organic alternatives to wellness in any form, whether it’s the food I eat, health remedies, or the way I live my life.
My interest in women’s health and fertility began when I was studying nutrition. I became enthralled by the idea that something as basic as what we feed ourselves could be having such a dramatic effect on our ability to conceive and have healthy babies.
Every day I'm amazed and humbled by what I learn, and what our bodies do to keep in sync with the delicate rhythms and cycles that are unique to being women.
When we're able to tune in to our bodies and understand what they're telling us - we will then have the knowledge to give them what they need, avoid what is causing them harm, and heal them so they can do what they were built to do.
I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2005 and have been practicing massage therapy ever since. For the first 6 years of my career I worked at a high-end spa in downtown Vancouver, where I'm grateful to have learned how to really make people feel special, comfortable, and pampered. I learned the value of a calming environment and to never underestimate the power of relaxation. To this day I still incorporate those values into every treatment I do.
In 2011 I moved to Saskatoon where I continued working as an RMT, and began school for holistic nutrition, which I graduated from in 2013. I've always had a great love of food and cooking, and combined with my interest in natural health and wellbeing, this was the perfect next step. What I learned about food, and the profound effect it has on our bodies and minds, astounded me.
In the summer of 2015 I went to Chicago for an intensive training course in Mercier Therapy with Jennifer Mercier. The skills and knowledge I gained in this course are invaluable - it is an amazing program and I am so excited to be able to offer this therapy to women who need it.
I have also taken courses to further my knowledge in visceral manipulation and the female pelvis, as well as infant massage instructing.
I feel honoured to be working in this field of women's health - a field that so desperately needs more practitioners with a holistic and natural approach, and is one of the most rewarding areas of work I can imagine.
