Kaitlyn enjoys helping clients achieve a balanced lifestyle that encompasses the dimensions of health, body wellness, and activity. She is excited for this opportunity to share her knowledge and experience with student athletes and others.  As a mom of one, Kaitlyn’s son was born in March 2018 so she understands the day-to-day struggles of finding balance in the household and making the time for your own health and wellness. Yoga is an area she is passionate about and is how she found strength and healing after she was in a car accident in 2013. Continuing to learn and grow in this field has helped her grow stronger and live each day with an open heart. She will be a student of the practice and forever growing as a yogi.

We are always looking for energetic and sport focused trainers to join our team.  For more information please contact our ASDC Coordinator 780-791-4876 .
