Joanne is a Certified Small Animal Acupressure Practitioner accredited by the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. Her love, passion and commitment to the total well-being of people and animals led to her decision to make a career change. When her dog, Kodi, developed cancer at age 7, Joanne was introduced to alternative medicine, which prompted her to learn about TCM for animals.

Joanne is also a certified Personal Trainer and recently opened Toronto's first boutique fitness studio where people work-out with their canine friends. Her interest in helping to teach people about overall wellness inspired the creation of Woof-fit. The training skills and anatomy courses that were required to become a Personal Training Specialist gave her a solid foundation to begin her animal acupressure studies.

Joanne's goals are to contribute to the health and well-being of all animals and to keep their energetics balanced. She enjoys working out, hiking, gardening, music and art.
