We treat people the way we want to be treated and we always provide compassionate attention in order to build trust, which we believe is the building block of any successful relationship. Every Movement Guild experience is focused on meeting your wants and needs while bolstering the mutual trust we create between all of our clients and teammates.
We are a community of top movement and health professionals that actualize a greater collective intelligence and offer a personalized (instead of one-size-fits-all) experience. We foster a safe and empowering environment that promotes complete individual wellness via physical therapy, massage therapy, active recovery, yoga and movement classes, and private training.

What makes her tick is helping her clients achieve their goals, and sharing with them a better understanding of the factors contributing to the Root cause of their issue and how to train more intelligently (not limited to self-care strategies, strength training, lifestyle etc) to avoid similar issues down the line.
She has been proud to volunteer with the Chicago Marathon, Shamrock Shuffle, Chicago Triathalon, and AVP tournament as a sports medicine provider over the course of her career, and loves to spend time with her three small children, run, train at Atlas CrossFit and Performance, and practice vinyasa yoga regularly to keep her body and mind happy and healthy.
