Certified Foundation Training Instructor
With my active lifestyle, most wouldn’t guess that I’ve been managing back pain since I was a teenager, when a spinal injury resulted in surgery. Thanks to my interest in wellness, a proactive attitude, and finding effective movement therapies, I’ve managed to avidly surf, perform physically demanding work and live a very active life. But a few years ago, the stresses of motherhood and a desk-based job seemed to overpower my ability to manage my pain. The tools I had used in the past weren’t enough anymore. Dr. Cartwright recommended that I try Foundation Training. Within two weeks, I began to feel hopeful that Foundation Training was helping. After eight months of consistent training, my quality of life transformed so much that I decided to become a certified teacher so I could help others. Like many other instructors, I wanted to share the benefits that Foundation Training had given me. I incorporate what I have learned through 20 years of surfing, swimming, practicing Iyengar Yoga, and managing back pain into my Foundation Training instruction.
In addition to Foundation Training, I have degrees in Zoology and Ocean Sciences. I also work with farmers to protect water resources. I am thrilled that some of the farmers I work with also practice Foundation Training! Healthy food and healthy backs – there is a strong connection here!
