Sarah is the owner and founder of ELM.  She holds a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Victoria and has been working in the fitness and rehabilitation field since 1995.  Her education includes both the art and science of Kinesiology, combining sports psychology, physical education and exercise physiology.  She is a Practicing Kinesiologist with the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists. Learn more about Kinesiology in British Columbia by going to the BCAK website

Sarah's experience comes not only from certification and training but also from her own success in life and sport. Before starting ELM, Sarah worked in the wilds of British Columbia with the BC Forest Service.  First, working as a treeplanter and then as a member of the Rapattack Wildland Firefighting Team for five years, Sarah learned the joys of hard, physical work which she applies to her career and all of her adventures.

Sarah believes we are capable of unimaginable human potential when we learn to harness the power of the mind. She is passionate about both the mental and physical realms of healing, training and exploring the boundaries of self perceived limitations.

Sarah works passionately with her clients and provides them with the knowledge and tools they need to overcome obstacles and reach their goals and dreams in life and sport.
