What is your background and training?
I attended UBC Okanagan (UBCO). I am trained in exercise prescription. I grew up playing competitive tennis and represented UBCO’s tennis club playing across Western Canada. Prior to joining Treloar, I worked as a Personal Trainer and I was also the head coach for the Special Olympics Powerlifting and Club Fit program.
What inspired you to choose this career path?
I live and breathe health and fitness. I want to educate and reach more people in understanding the importance of prescribed clinical exercise and the ways it can facilitate those with pain. I want people to choose exercise as not just something to do when they are in pain, but something to do to prevent pain and become part of their routine lifestyle.
Why did you choose to work at Treloar?
Working in a multidisciplinary team that cares! Treloar works as a team to give their clients the best experience. Treloar is also very supportive with their practitioners’ education and individual goals.
What are you personally passionate about?
Pushing myself physically! For example: doing a 5 rep max back squat 2 times my body weight, winning a 3 hour tennis match from being down match point, training for a half iron man race (cancelled 2 months before race date due to covid), and running 10km sub 50 minutes. I was not born with the greatest athletic gifts, I was never the strongest, fastest or had the best cardio; but with a written plan, discipline and relentless mentality, you can do almost anything you set your mind to.
