Teaching and learning is a way of life for Beth. She has been a fitness professional since 1998 following a childhood filled with the rhythms of piano, dance and a variety of sports.
Her interest in the great outdoors combined with diligent study habits allowed Beth to earn her Master’s degree in Physical Geography from McGill University (2001). In the hours away from her thesis, Beth followed her passion for health and wellness by becoming a certified group fitness instructor. She taught cardio kickboxing at multiple gyms around Montreal and even found time to supervise McGill’s training room.
After completing her MSc, she followed her heart and elected to return to school. In 2004, she earned a BSc in Exercise Science from Concordia University, certified with the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association, and a few months later the National Athletic Trainers Association (U.S.A.). In 2007 she deepened her list of credentials by completing a certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Before arriving at High Performance Consultants in 2006, she worked for four years with the Athletic Therapy students at Concordia University. During those four years, she taught practical labs and coordinated student internships with sports teams and in clinics. From 2011-2014 she supervised and mentored third-year Athletic Therapy clinical interns at Concordia University’s PERFORM Centre Athletic Therapy Clinic.
Beth continues her education by taking courses that expose her to new exercise techniques, manual therapies and rehabilitation concepts. This style continues to be reflected in her work at Premiere Performance where she is known for going the extra mile. She considers her clients holistically when tailoring her creative yet scientifically rooted programs. Beth accomplishes all of this while regularly collaborating with other health professionals from around Montreal and is considered a great addition to any therapy team. Beth is regarded as an expert in her field and, as a result, has worked with a wide range of clients: weekend warriors to Olympic and professional athletes, and everything in between. Beth rebuilds clients based upon their activity, lifestyle or athletic goals. Whether it is pain-free activity or improved performance, her systematic approach is the same: identify where you currently are, where you want to be and what plan will help you get there.
