Creating change doesn't need to be complicated and I am here to make the transition easier. By using a systematic approach that is tailored towards your lifestyle and goals, we can co-create a nutrition, supplement, exercise, or triathlon plan that will be enjoyable, sustainable, and deliver results.
I have been fortunate to learn from some of the best coaches and athletes in the world during my time as an elite runner and triathlete. This experiential learning has been supported with a BSc in Nutrition and a Master's in Kinesiology. My Master's research was focused on the motivational strategies of the world's best ITU triathlon coaches. During this time I gained invaluable insight as I interviewed and observed these coaches working with their athletes.

The Aegis Ritual™
Honouring The Mind-Skin Connection
Researchers have found that stress and the skin problems it triggers reflect a “mind-skin” connection that is at work in all human beings. This connection refers to a physiological pathway in which two-way communication exists between the skin and brain (Orion & Wolf, 2012).
The human body experiences chemical changes and physical responses as a result of one’s thoughts and feelings. When one consciously alters their emotions and thoughts to be more positive, the result is less stress in the body.
By taking a few minutes each day to say a positive affirmation before using Lumisceuticals®, individuals can lower their cortisol “stress” levels and increase the production of endorphins – the body’s “feel good hormones”. These are critical factors in slowing the signs of aging, reducing inflammation induced by high cortisol levels, and improving the skin’s barrier function.
We at AEGIS consider this to be as important as any topical or ingestible skin care ingredient. This is a paradigm shift in the way skincare should be approached in the 21st century.
"The AEGIS Ritual™ is an application technique that invites individuals to the present moment.
This act, as well as a greater recognition one’s self, can significantly diminish
negative stress levels in the body."
