Coach Allie was the first certified Rock Steady Boxing coach in Vancouver. She first learned about Rock Steady Boxing on CBS's Sunday Morning in November, 2015, and knew she had to bring this inspiring program to Vancouver. Allie is a registered Occupational Therapist who has worked in Neurological Rehab in acute care, rehabilitation and currently in an outpatient community clinic. Since being trained in the Rock Steady Method, Allie has also completed her PWR! (Parkinson Wellness Recovery) Instructor training. She brings her knowledge of both methods into all of her Rock Steady classes. Allie is a client-centred therapist who strives to motivate her clients to meet their goals while enabling them to participate in their most meaningful activities.
Allie grew up in Vancouver, went to McGill University for her undergraduate degree and completed her Masters of Science Degree at the University of Toronto in Occupational Therapy. When she is not teaching Rock Steady Boxing you can find Allie out for a run, ride or hike. Allie has a passion for fitness and values the importance of exercise in overall health and wellbeing.
