I’m Brigitta and I have a passion for building brain resiliency, managing post-concussion care and optimizing athletic performance.
I am a nationally certified health coach and internationally certified sports nutritionist skilled at working with all types and ages of athletes. I provide motivation and accountability while you set goals and conquer through them! I work with you to dial in your sports nutrition and optimize your sleep for recovery, immune support, and injury prevention. We'll bolster your brain health and mindset for training and competing. For female athletes I will teach you how to work with your monthly cycle, rather than against it, to go from dreading that time of the month to optimizing your performance.
I transitioned from being a competitive athlete to a professional skating coach while completing her Specialized Honours in Kinesiology & Health Science, and is currently an NCCP Level 1 Skating Coach with over 12 years of international experience.
In 2011, I graduated from the Paramedic Program and have been working in Emergency Medical Services as a Primary Care Paramedic for close to a decade, allowing her first-hand insight into the conventional model of care.
I am grateful to bear witness to lives being saved before my eyes and greatly appreciate the continued advances in both Prehospital and Emergency Medicine. However, I quickly saw that this model of protocol-based, symptom relief system of medicine did little to address the individual root cause of dysfunction and disease, especially when it comes to post concussion care.
My passion for post-concussion care began when I earned a spot on the Sports Medicine focus shift in my internship year during my studies at CCNM.
I additionally began my Cranial Sacral Therapy training and I am a Certified Sports Nutritionist with ISSN, which I apply in my work with athletes, those struggling with chronic pain and post-concussion syndrome.
"I believe that health and wellbeing benefit from both novel and traditional perspectives of medicine. It does not have to be one versus the other. It is about empowering you with a holistic view of your brain health and working to create a plan that makes sense for your life."
My breadth of knowledge and experience allows for unique insights into working with you to find solutions for the obstacles holding you back from achieving better health.
Areas of interest: Cranial Sacral therapy, post-concussion care, brain resiliency, sports nutrition, and health coaching.
