Tell us a little something about your business...

I was a pioneer in the Canadian fitness industry – co-owned a gym in the 90’s, opened a personal training studio in 2001 and dabbled in competitive body building. Although I looked very good, I was not feeling healthy. Around the same time frame, I lost my mother very suddenly one evening to a heart attack and stroke. After witnessing dreadful hospital care, unanswered questions from the medical system, along with my own personal health issues, I felt that I needed to learn more about our bodies.

When was your lightbulb moment?

In 2008, I went back to school for naturopathy and opened my practice in 2011 called Live the Wow …(world of wellness). The knowledge acquired in school along with the amazing healing journeys witnessed by some clients led me to desperately want to deliver this message to the world ……..‘What your body created, it can heal. “Disease is an illusion “My book, Let’s Practice Health, learn why your gut is the CEO of your health was published in 2017.

What are your three words of advice?

…Success begins in the mind
