I serve clients with disabilities and expecting mothers. I’m passionate about helping others to feel well and happy in their bodies, and to live pain-free.


Pilates corrects your posture, addresses muscle imbalances, and mobilizes your joints.


1:1 Pilates classes are the best way to get started, which I offer in-studio and online.


Manage pain, recover after an accident or rehab an injury. I provide treatment of lifelong disability.



My doctor recommended Pilates in 2007 as a way to manage my cerebral palsy. I didn’t do it at first because I, like a lot of other people, thought Pilates was for people who were already strong and flexible. I was neither of those things.

In the summer of 2008, my massage therapist told me that massages were a waste of money if I wasn’t exercising. I don’t like the gym and didn’t want to go. There happened to be a Pilates studio right up the road from the massage therapy clinic, so I went there and never looked back.

I used Pilates to manage my cerebral palsy. It helped my posture, balance, strength, and mobility. My pelvis untwisted, my feet stopped clunking, the huge curve in my spine diminished, and I carried myself differently. People who had known me for years often didn’t recognize me because my body changed so much in a very short period of time.

Becoming an instructor

I did Pilates for almost eleven years before I became an instructor. After seven years of working in journalism and digital marketing, I lost a job I’d barely started. I knew I wanted to change industries, but wasn’t sure what to do. The next day, I went to my Pilates class. The studio owner asked me how the job was going. I told her it hadn’t worked out and she said, ‘Do you want to be a Pilates teacher?’ I said, ‘Yes!’

I trained under Monique Lavoie in Winnipeg at Pilates Winnipeg, and worked with her for two and a half years before making the move to the west coast to work with Liam at Pilates Etc in Victoria.

Serving people with disabilities

Because I have a disability, I help other people with disabilities. I specialize in treating disability because there are so many people with disabilities who, like me, can be too intimidated to try Pilates. Working with a disabled instructor helps them to see that Pilates is within their capability.


I create personalized classes and plans for each client, and work with them in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Clients who have convinced themselves that they can’t do Pilates quickly realize that they can.


Pilates can be adapted for any ability, fitness level, size, or medical condition.

I have helped clients who experience arthritis, vertigo, migraines, knee injuries, brain trauma, ADHD, Erb’s palsy, Graves’ disease, dyslexia, clinical depression, and diabetes.

I offer 1:1 and semi-private classes in person and on Zoom.
