ON A MISSION: 

WOAH involves convenient exercises that can be done without any equipment, anytime, anywhere, in order to  help you incorporate a more active lifestyle and gain the functional strength to get out and do the things you love! Functional movements take advantage of everyday tasks, use household items as equipment, and get the most out of the smallest amount of time. Learn ways to use exercise and nutrition as medicine. A full health picture involves elements of these as well as self-care, mind-body awareness, and mindfulness, while encompassing the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of your whole being. WOAH is a philosophy of living a healthy lifestyle in order to feel good today and prevent disease tomorrow. Take responsibility for your own health and be empowered to heal naturally. All from home. Or wherever you want...  

Background: 

My personal training journey began over a decade ago in while receiving my BS in Health Sciences from Northeastern University in Boston, MA during an internship in a doctor referral program in 2007. Inspired by exercise as medicine, I earned my Personal Training Certification from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) with additional trainings in Nutritional Counseling and Chronic Pain Education. I received my Orthopedic Specialist Certification in 2017 to help restore function in those following orthopedic rehabilitation with exercise prescription. I gained my Functional Training Specialist Certification in 2019.


My sessions involve addressing muscle imbalances, preventing injury, and improving movement patterns, muscular strength and endurance. For my own fitness, I train as a dancer and travel internationally as a character performer in immersive theater. I am a professional clown. I am currently in my fourth year (out of 5) of naturopathic medical school learning both western medical and alternative medical approaches with an holistic philosophy of looking at the person as a whole. My focus is in body centered practice using energetic physical medicine. I am learning chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, cranial-sacral therapy, and orthobionomy/somatic re-education with the intention of listening to the body rather than doing in order to facilitate its natural healing response. It's a dance. Together.
