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 a space 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 wellbeing.  She currently provides individual coaching packages as well as small-group meetings 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 stress and wellness retreats to be held both here in Canada and abroad.
