Laurie completed examinations with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario in 2000, and worked as an RMT in the province until 2014. During that time, she owned and managed a multidisciplinary wellness clinic, and acted as both faculty and administration at massage therapy colleges throughout the GTA. Her role in education included program coordinator for two Toronto campuses, curriculum development and instruction, specifically in anatomy, physiology and pathology.
In 2014, she moved to Halifax (Nova Scotia) and brought her unique style of neurological-based practice to the east coast; she taught at two massage therapy colleges, coordinated and led study groups for healthcare professionals, presented at several conferences and developed and delivered her own continuing education courses. She spent a short time living in Northern Alberta, is currently back in Nova Scotia and continues to travel to teach, treat and learn. She runs courses for the general public and healthcare and fitness professionals from Alberta to Nova Scotia. Laurie believes that being a lifelong learner is key to being an effective therapist, and her additional training includes NeuroKinetic Therapy, yoga teacher training, StrongFirst KettleBell User, Primal Movement Patterns, Cupping, RockTape, Active Isolated Stretching and personal training. In her spare time, Laurie can be found at the gym, near a beautiful body of water or the airport, as she travels frequently to visit family and to work.
