Jami believes is a holistic approach to health and wellness

She has extensive training and professional experience in sport and exercise psychology and peak performance coaching. In this capacity she has worked with elite level athletes and coaches in hockey, football, rugby, basketball, and golf.

Jami has a large arsenal of tools at her disposal that allow her to be an effective health and wellness consultant. She has training in relaxation techniques, meditation, imagery and visualization, and breathing techniques, and is committed to helping her clients achieve their goals.

With an extensive background in physical therapy and exercise science, Jami is an expert in movement dysfunction, pain management, and health improvement, and is adept at modifying activities to meet the specific needs of her clients.

Creating a safe and supportive environment for her clients to explore their boundaries is of the utmost importance to Jami.  She understands that facing personal limitations and having the courage to try something new can be incredibly intimidating.  She strives to provide an environment in which her clients feel secure enough to do this.  With over a decade of experience in education, she has learned many different teaching techniques to help people at all ability levels feel comfortable and safe.

Jami’s mission is to educate her clients and empower them to take a more active approach to their own health.  She currently provides individual consultation packages as well as small-group workshops and, being an avid travel enthusiast with a serious case of wanderlust, her newest project in the works is the development of a series of future destination wellness retreats to be held both here in Canada and abroad.

When she is not writing or consulting, Jami continues to practice physiotherapy and teach yoga.

She is a member of L’Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec (The Professional Order for Physiotherapy in Québec) and is registered with the Canadian Yoga Alliance.
