I literally live, breathe and love health and wellness. It’s been a part of my constitution since I can remember and I feel so incredibly lucky to do what I adore every single day.
I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), Certified Life Coach, and Certified Personal Trainer, based out of Leslieville, Toronto. I'm also the founder of The IBS Academy & the founder of Healthstyle by Cassandra Hope, an award-winning entrepreneur (Notable.ca 2015 entrepreneur of the year).
Canadian media was picking up what I was putting down so I’ve been fortunate to have been featured on The Marilyn Denis Show, The Social and ETalk as a guest expert where I shared my passion and knowledge about fitness, wellness and all things healthy and good!
It’s important for you to know that I haven’t always been a passionate, happy and healthy person. My dedication to my clients and my passion to help stems from my own battle with disease, depression and anxiety, physical injury as well as overcoming an eating disorder.
Although I may have ended up as an RHN and personal trainer etc. no matter what, I’m grateful that I had such an array of physical and mental challenges over the years because I can identify with my clients and have empathy for wherever they may be.
My journey to becoming a coach stemmed from the same place many a coaches’ and healers’ does. Pain. From living through a traumatic childhood of mental, emotional and physical abuse, as well as body dysmorphia during 3 years as a fitness competitor, I developed beliefs about myself that led to debilitating digestive issues, depression and addiction, abusive relationships as an adult woman, and a terrible relationship with food.
I know first-hand the mind-body connection when it comes to pain and disease in life. Though, my resilient and loving spirit never let me give up on the possibility of healing. I realized around the age of 28 that healing was possible and that I needed to ask for help in order to climb out of my downward spiral.
