Some Academic & Professional Details

I earned an Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology degree while competing as a varsity track athlete. From there, achieved my Doctor of Chiropractic degree and Diploma of Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from McMaster University. I’ve spent countless hours learning about health, wellness, movement, and what it means to live in whole health from books, research papers, continuing education courses and from over a decade of clinical experience. As a passionate athlete, learner and educator, sharing what I’ve learned with others lights me up, while empowering others to step into their best health and lives.

I’m grateful to have been featured in leading magazines such as The Oprah Magazine, news segments, corporate media products such as Gaia and Air Canada’s En Route, as well as in a variety of online media. In addition to this, I have the fortune of leading corporate lectures and workshops and authoring numerous articles in popular publications as well as several case studies in peer-focused journals.

When people feel great in their bodies, they have the power to live their best lives.

As Seen In:


I’ve been blessed with so many wonderful opportunities that have enabled me to grow as a leader, a creator, a life-long learner, a health educator, an entrepreneur… and quite simply, a person! Over the years, I’ve been deeply inspired and changed by the lessons I’ve learned from beautiful people, various art forms, sport, nature, philosophy, travel, love, food, all types of relationships, and so much more. These experiences have shaped my approach to health, healing, and living a great life.

Wholeness is everything!

Passion + Purpose…

Upon stepping into motherhood, I developed the understanding that I don’t have forever on this planet and want my years here to be meaningful. This epiphany drove me to connect with my purpose and the fact that I want to inspire our girls to be their best and subsequently live their best lives.

Since I deeply believe in the power of modeling for our children, I do my best to become more self-aware, learn more and be better every single day. Through this continued effort, I hope to better serve myself and those around me both the personal and professional spheres of my life. By living my best, my girls will witness this and hopefully in the process, I will empower many to do the same.

This passion and purpose led me to develop Lioness. This work truly holds a piece of my heart and hopefully, a part of yours too!

I truly hope we can connect soon to make some magic together!


I’d really love to connect with you!
