When you’ve played hockey for most of your life, there is a part of you that will always be interested in health and fitness. After my playing days were behind me, I realized that it was still an important part of my life, and knew that this was a career path I wanted to pursue. And so I enrolled in the Fitness Leadership program at Seneca.
"My teachers at Seneca were instrumental in helping me turn what I loved to do into a career path I never thought possible. They showed me how to trust myself, how to let my passion and my instincts guide me in the right direction for my career and my life."
My experience at Seneca opened many doors. It led me to opportunities in the field of sports medicine, including the chance to work in the Bahamas with a sports medicine doctor. I was working with people who had sports backgrounds just like mine, but who were now dealing with injuries or rehabbing to get back to playing. And I saw in many of these people – especially women – so much fear and doubt in their own abilities. That was when I realized I wanted to make a change: I wanted to help women to be their best self.
Since then I have gone on to start my own business as a certified Integrative Health and Lifestyle Coach. I work with women who are looking to make big changes in their lives but don’t have the support to do so. Whether it has to do with their relationships, their careers, their spirituality or their physical fitness and nutrition, I help women set the goals to make those changes, and provide them with the guidance they need along the way. I’ve also helped launch On The Run Meals, an organic meal prep and delivery business. My position as Vice President of Operations helps me interact with all clients on a deeper level by integrating my health coaching.
"Changing lives is so rewarding. Watching people get out there and get what they deserve, it feels so great to know that I was a part of that."
