Theme-based group coaching sessions (at virtual and in-person events or inside Wellness Lounges) to give attendees a taste of health/life coaching:
I'm a health behavior scientist, professional speaker, health/life coach and certified yoga instructor. I integrate mind-body breaks into my talks and use in-person and virtual meetings as the perfect "teachable moment" to show attendees how to stay balanced and focused. I'm on a mission to infuse ENERGY into events and make SELF-CARE easy and accessible - one micro-step, one byte at a time.
My Byte-Size Wellness approach is the culmination of my 30+ year research - academic career in exercise/health promotion, disease management, aging, addictions and tobacco control. I have a Ph.D. in Community Health from the University of Toronto where I was an adjunct professor and I was a former National Cancer Institute of Canada postdoctoral fellow. I worked at renowned teaching hospitals, consulted to pharmaceutical companies and health organizations about the patient disease journey experience, and taught chronic disease exercise classes.
I put my research into practice and created a way to make wellness sustainable. I understand what influences health behaviors and habits and what motivates people to change. I know what combination of evidence-based strategies and approaches are needed to help people develop lifelong healthy habits. It starts with shifting from an "all-or-nothing" mindset to a micro-break, micro-habit mindset and embracing wellness as a journey, a lifestyle, not a destination.
Tweaking one habit has a ripple effect, triggering positive changes in other inter-related health areas: diet, sleep, exercise, mindfulness and mental health. It's the small behaviors - (like taking mind-body breaks) the small changes in routines, when repeated consistently lead to healthy habits that have long-lasting results.
My gifts are my takeways: actionable tips and EAT, SLEEP, MOVE, BREATHE resources to help audiences sustain the wellness momentum post-conference. Participants will leave my breaks and talks with self-care practices that they can quickly and easily implement into their busy working days and everyday lives.
The result: More energy. Less stress. Improved self-esteem. Better work-life balance. Resilience. Agility. Vitality.I WANT THESE GIFTS!
