Owner of Okanagan Pilates and Health
I am a STOTT PILATES© Certified Instructor, ACE Personal Trainer (American Council of Exercise) and BCRPA Supervisor of Fitness Leaders (British Columbia Recreation & Parks association) and have a comprehensive background in the fitness industry.
Seeing the need for a safe, supportive and educational studio in Kelowna, I opened Okanagan Pilates and Health in 2003. With my passion for running and fitness, my depth of knowledge, and my recognition in the community, Okanagan Pilates and Health quickly established itself as a popular pilates studio and I have been very fortunate over the years to form great relationships with many loyal clients.
Suffering a disk injury in 2008 that required surgery, time off work, and personal rehabilitation, I found myself in a situation I had guided many clients through – the direction of my personal fitness needed to change. Incorporating pilates in my personal rehabilitation allowed me to rebuild my range of movement and strength, getting my mobility back.
