I grew up in a very small community called Loon Bay in the central part of Newfoundland, Canada.
I completed my Bachelor of Nursing at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2000. Throughout my 19 years of nursing, I have worked within all of the ages and spectrum of life, from premature infants to the elderly. Ten years of my nursing career was as a Travel Cardiac and Trauma ICU nurse in the USA. The remaining seven years were a mix of public health nursing, genetic research, clinical research and nursing program development. I have had many enriching experiences while being a part of healing journeys during some of the most vulnerable times in peoples' lives.
One of the most important, valuable and cherished combined roles I enjoy - that of a nurse/educator - I now bring to my Rolfing® practice. In this role, I am able to provide people with the awareness, knowledge, and support to help them make informed decisions that will positively impact daily living. Empowering others with the tools to find ease, comfort, freedom, confidence, space and openness within their own bodies has potential to spill over into all other areas of their lives.
Over the past 20 years I have lived professionally in the standard medical field while exploring the world of alternative medicine for my own wellness and healthy lifestyle choices. I feel very comfortable and knowledgeable weaving together both of these complementary modalities.
I have cultivated a way of interacting with others that is accepting, non-judgemental, nurturing and supportive. I enjoy connecting with both my intuition and my scientific background to explore the internal intelligence that exists in another human body, mind and spirit.
