Hi, my name is Ali and I am a corporate health and wellness professional living and working in Toronto. I graduated with an Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Guelph and a post-graduate certificate from Centennial College in Workplace Wellness and Health promotion. You can often find me frequenting the many amazing coffee shops (I LOVE coffee) in this beautiful city talking about the importance of preventative health and wellness. I enjoy running, reading, coffee (did I already say that?), cooking, writing, cottaging, researching, animals and spending time with loved ones. I believe travel is the best form of education out there. I was born and raised a city girl but have a ferocious appetite for the outdoors and the peace that comes from spending time in solitude with nature.

I believe that life can be enjoyed but we often get too caught up in our busy lives to stop and smell the flowers, and most importantly, to take care of ourselves. Inspired by the common complaint (and feelings I had myself) that life is too overwhelming and happiness seems out of reach – I decided to pursue a career in wellness. I believe that our mental health and physical health are one in the same and am a big advocate for mental fitness. I am a busy person, just like you, but I strive to not let that define me. I strive to challenge the way people look at things and the way we live in our society. My goal is to show others that while life can be chaotic, there are ways to make small changes and look after ourselves. I strive to inspire and motivate others to change their lives in a way that works for them. In a time where we receive 1000 media messages a day about losing weight and eating certain foods we often lose sight of what it really means to be healthy. Life is about balance and self-care. I want to help you find that.

This is a space for me to share my health and wellness tips, stories, successful recipes and random tid-bits about my life.
