About Me


Hey, I'm Dev.

I’m a Professional Home Economist, Yoga Instructor and Wellness Guide. Creating a community where you feel seen and heard is what truly lights me up. 

MY STORY

I continued eating what I considered a healthy amount — 800-1000 calories a day — and working out as often as I could until I got to university. I even applied to live on the healthy lifestyles floor at Western because I figured if I was in the nutrition program, I would really need to be around people who understood my lifestyle.

 

After first year, I made some awesome friends and I was slowly pulled out of my restrictions and schedule and began to actually have fun… But then I started gaining weight, as most people do in university, so I became unhappy and focused on that again.
 
Eventually somewhere along the way from my third to my fifth year at school, I finally became satisfied — if not actually happy — about my body and my life. I was still taking nutrition, but had switched to a program but with more of a holistic approach to healthy living. This program focused on nutrition, human ecology and families, rather than the dietetic ideology.
I started to learn about living life in moderation and understanding that you’re allowed to eat things that aren’t ‘clean’ and that you don’t have to work out every single day. I realized that I wouldn’t lose progress physically if I didn’t make it to the gym as often as I planned.
I started to focus on what I was putting into my body and whether or not I even understood the ingredients on the package. A lot of this had to do with what I was learning in school, but after living with so many roommates for so long, I also realized that a healthy lifestyle looks different for everyone.
I realized that a healthy lifestyle is more than what you’re eating and how much you’re moving. It’s about what you’re thinking and saying — to yourself and to others.

How Yoga Came
into play

In 2015 I finished my 200hr yoga certificate and since then I have been teaching as much as I can and continuing to learn about nutrition and wellness. I’ve also been sharing my love and passion for yoga and wellness, and teaching how the two can be combined to create an amazing lifestyle. I’ve been able to reach a variety of clients, helping some with mobility through yoga, and others with living a better life through food and lifestyle changes.
I’m now taking the leap and focusing on my work in this world. We all have a purpose, and we all have a reason to share what we love. Mine is to help you feel your best, in whatever way I can. If I can do it, so can you.
I can’t wait to meet you!
