Motivational Speaker, Educator, Client….


“We all go through periods of upheaval, depression, difficulty and struggles.  It’s normal to not feel normal some of the time in life.”
I am a motivational speaker, workshop leader, continuous improvement expert as well as an educator in health management through body, mind and breath intelligence.

My original educational background is in the sciences and process improvement management.  A corporate Continuous Improvement Manager for many years,  my early career involved corporate process improvement projects.  I was specifically responsible for creating workshop delivery of training, executive training, process improvement strategies and interacting with all levels within the organizations I worked with.

As a result of a mental health injury, I searched for answers in parallel to my career in the corporate sector, to help me cope with unexplained anxiety attacks.  Yoga was introduced in 2002, after a car accident.  The healing effects instantly became a source of passion because of the immediate results on my musculoskeletal and nervous systems.  Coming from a mindset of looking at waste in processes and building quality in, I immediately saw the gap in our healthcare regarding proactive health strategies – most especially, mental health.  The paradigm shifting power of the science of yoga theory impassioned me to change my career to become a student and, ultimately, a teacher of yoga therapy and mental health injury prevention.  I have spent 16 years studying with the worlds leading yoga experts regarding the subject of mental health.  As well I have followed leading experts in this field,  to become an advanced yoga teacher/speaker/leader with expertise in the subject of body, mind and breath intelligence as it pertains to physical, mental and emotional health.
Through my public speaking, workshop sessions and private consultations, I help my clients to understand the relationship between their body, mind and breath as it pertains to their mental and physical state. Knowledge is power on this topic.  Let the science of anatomy, mindfulness and application be the proof needed to acknowledge this powerful relationship which exists for all of us.  As a result of working with me, clients are able to cultivate an improved mental,  physical and emotional balance, using the tools that I teach and use myself in my daily life.
