I have been a business owner and health educator for over 30 years. My specialty is stress management education. I have provided diverse services to corporations such as CIBC, TD, RBC, BASF, Windsor Regional Hospital and the City of Windsor. Through my company JSC Lifestyle Management Inc, I have had the opportunity to provide onsite yoga, meditation, seminars, wellness fairs and digital educational tools to numerous individuals and companies. This extensive interaction has allowed me to develop multimedia online programs as well as techniques to release tension and promote optimum mind-body function in private sessions.
I am coming full circle in my teaching experience and bringing my skills to children. The Generation One Kids Mindfulness Program is an engaging 15 lesson plan for elementary school age children to assist in developing emotional literacy and tools to manage their own stress as young individuals. The program has received enthusiastic feedback from teachers, students and parents over the last 4 years of development.
My diverse background includes a Bachelor of Communication Studies/Visual Arts (Hon.) and a Bachelor of Education. I’m the fun, jockey art teacher! I am also a Medical Reiki Practitioner and Yoga Teacher. My amazing fitness career evolved as a group fitness instructor/trainer, competitor and eventually owner of a seven figure wellness centre. As a cancer survivor, I know firsthand how trauma and overwhelming stress can make life hard to cope with. I have witnessed tremendous change over the years in how our culture talks and deals with mental health. We have many more options and tools to heal and move forward. My personal and professional experiences allow me to bring a fresh perspective to stressful situations. The videos below give you some examples of my work over the years.
