A Little About Me
I am a pregnancy and postpartum athleticism coach here in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I started HER Coach in 2019 as I felt there was a major gap in the knowledge, and know how about exercise during pregnancy and returning to exercise postpartum. I graduated from the University of Winnipeg with my Bachelors in Kinesiology and Applied Health in 2015 and have been coaching as a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer since 2013. I went on to pursue a career as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner and received my DOMP, Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice in 2017. Throughout the years, I have taken numerous additional courses, seminars and workshops both in the fields of health, fitness and osteopathy.
My Goal for HER Coach
My goal for HER Coach is to be a beacon of light and direction during a time that can already be overwhelming when becoming a mother, whether thats for the first or consecutive time. Having to do your own research about exercise and wonder whether you are moving correctly, if a movement is appropriate during your stage of pregnancy or recovery or when something just doesn’t feel quite right is where HER Coach comes in.
