What does movement mean to her?
“To me, movement means everyday life! Whether it be chasing after my young son, running, hiking, or going up and down the stairs at home, we use movement all day every day. I love working with people and showing them how much movement potential they have that they never realized and then putting it into everyday practice.”
Why does she do what she does?
“I love doing what I do because of how much I’ve personally enjoyed being active and healthy through life thus far. I want others to realize their potential and see them flourish and live their best life with as little pain as possible. Seeing the transformation that happens in patients and hearing them say how they taught their spouse how to squat properly from a chair or get up from the ground without difficulty is music to my soul.”
What’s the best advice she has ever received?
“The best advice I’ve ever received is don’t settle for mediocre. Find what makes your body thrive and your mind tick. It opens you up to many more experiences and things you may never have thought you could do!”
