About the author: Marcia
As a healthy 61 year old, my wish for all of us is to age well by moving more. Living an active lifestyle helps you remain agile. Helping you to be an “active ager” and striving to feel better in your body is why is started VITAL 1 FITNESS. Now in my 41st year of nursing, having worked in many areas from the Emergency department to an outpatient cancer treatment center, I have broadened my aspirations by teaching Essentrics™ classes. It is incredibly gratifying to hear the improvements each participant has experienced in flexibility, pain relief and wellbeing. Some of my certifications and awards include: Certified Essentrics™ Instructor (Level 4 Honours); Myeloma Canada Nurse of the Year, 2015; DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses nominee, 2014 and 2015; Nursing Advisory Board Panelist, 2011, 2013 and 2014; Research Nurse of the Year Tom Baker Cancer Center, 2006.
