I am a high energy, caring person. I am trained as a Physiotherapist, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and a Certified Yoga Teacher. My passions include nutrition, gardening, and mindful, intelligent movement.
I practice what I preach. My daily movements usually incorporates at least one of the following practices: Yoga, TaiChi, strength training, high intensity interval training, vigorous walks, cycling and or swimming. My diet is alkaline based with plenty of vegetables, locally farm-raised animal protein and legumes.
My most significant contribution to society has been creating two outstanding human beings, John and Katherine. I am blessed to have the support and wonderful company of my husband, Richard. I look forward to sharing another thirty years with him.

Since 1984 I have dedicated myself to helping individuals, like yourself, achieve their highest level of function and fitness. I have worked at YMCAs, Yoga studios, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, community clinics, as well as industrial settings across Canada and the United States. Before I started MelioGuide, I owned two companies: Injury Reduction in the Workplace and Full Swing – Golf Performance. I get to work with some amazing clients, get on TV shows, and achieve my health goals.
Award of Distinction
I am the proud recipient of the 2011 Award of Distinction from the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario for my significant contributions and achievements as a Physiotherapist.
Author and Educator
With much assistance from my husband, I developed two online courses for health care professionals: Working with Osteoporosis and Osteopenia and Building a Stronger Core. Working with Osteoporosis and Osteopenia is available at MedBridge Education.
I blog on melioguide.com and I am also a guest columnist with Physiospot—the leading website resource for Physiotherapists and the topic expert for osteoporosis on Physiopedia.
I am the person behind the scenes at MelioGuide. I created Margaret’s online presence (her website, YouTube channel, her video content, blog articles, books, and continuing education courses for health care professionals).
When Margaret and I lived in the Bay Area, I was a senior marketing executive at Apple, Cisco, and Broadcom. I was lucky and was able to work with great people at great companies. I learned my trade from these talented people and applied those skills to Margaret’s business.
Besides working on MelioGuide, I am involved in iOS application software development and advise startups in Silicon Valley and Canada. I am excited to work in digital health and believe that healthcare represents one of the biggest areas we need to address in the coming years.
