By day, I am a clinical exercise physiologist & kinesiologist. It means I really, really, like the human body. It also means I provide exercise prescriptions and lifestyle counselling to people with chronic illnesses, the majority of them being cardiovascular and metabolic conditions. I also do rehab from motor vehicle and workplace injuries. Part scientist, part cheerleader.
I began upon my career path in 2008 (officially), when I began my university undergraduate degree. Over the course of that time, I held many different positions in similar and divergent applications of exercise science, coaching, teaching, personal training, and rehabilitation.
I live with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). It’s a very complicated autoimmune system disorder that likes to cause a ruckus in how I metabolize glucose, which means it makes exercise necessary and also very challenging.
In my spare time, I like to race and compete. I used to be an avid obstacle course racer (OCR). If you would like to know more about it, you should read this FAQ on mudrunguide.com. I changed my focus in 2019 and beyond to center around off and on-road duathlon (cycling and running), getting into XTerra Racing. In the winter, I like to train and be involved with biathlon events.
I also enjoy writing and keep a blog. I am passionate about accurate information and love debunking health myths and pseudoscience.
