In our experience, finding credible services from professionals that fit needs was a frustrating and time-consuming exercise, with no central place to search, select, and connect. There had to be an easier way.
We all know where to go to find recommendations and ratings for restaurants and travel accommodations, why couldn’t we have this for fitness, health and wellness professionals?
In early 2014, after fourteen months of research and development, we founded Fitness Health Match Inc., a central website focused on customer engagement and showcasing professional profiles.
We felt it would be important to be easy to use, and robust as the current social media platforms. We also required the website to be open, accessible, free, and ultimately optimized. The result of our efforts was FHMatch.com.
Our mission is to become the global premier social network site, promoting the well-being of the public, by enabling matching services for consumers with professionals of choice in the Fitness, Health and Wellness community.
We always want you to have a great experience with FHMatch.

As a past collegiate competitor and active participant in rugby, soccer and mountain bike racing, I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and helping consumers find the right fit for professional health and wellness services.
Professionally, I have over 20 years of experience in senior portfolio management, across several verticals in relationship management where my career has focused on customer benefit to value and strategic mapping.
As a dynamic leader with a consistent and methodical approach, I focus on executing strategic positions on targets and standards in the digital age.
When I was first approached about my thoughts on FHMatch, I immediately valued the idea of a web-platform that would concentrate on customer engagement and client access, while showcasing professionals involved in the health and wellness industry. Although I lead a very active lifestyle, over the years I have been plagued with numerous reoccurring injuries. As a result I understand the struggle and difficulty involved in locating a reliable knowledgeable professional to treat my chronic aches and pains.
Trying to locate a professional has always been a painful and time consuming process. This led me to realize the importance of FHMatch and that it is a much need solution in the marketplace. I bring my unique background as an entrepreneur and small business owner, along with an abundance of determination and life-skills to help build FHMatch’s success.
I grew up in SW Ontario, where much of my free-time was spent being active across several sports including baseball and soccer. Starting my career as a lawyer then later as a small business entrepreneur, I relocated between Ottawa and Toronto to build on career opportunities. However, despite having a large network of contacts it was always a struggle to find new health and fitness professionals, whether it be a reputable massage therapist, fitness trainer or locating recreational sports leagues. When presented with the opportunity to join FHMatch and to be part of creating a new social media platform focused in the health and wellness industry, it was something I had to be a part of.
Aside from my enthusiasm for being active and trying various pursuits including golf, dodgeball and inner tube water-polo, I bring to FHMatch my background as a commercial litigator and corporate counsel in both the public and private sector.
As an OPA (“Ontario Physique Association”) bikini competitor, I know firsthand the struggles of finding a qualified coach, especially when you are new to the fitness industry. After a multitude of web searches, yielding limited relevant returns and very little information about the professional, it became obvious on the gaps to determine fit. Most websites or individual profiles, provide little to no information. Even if they have an online presence, they are difficult to locate.
Currently, the best way to find a professional is by word of mouth or Instagram, and even then it is very difficult if not impossible to know if they will be a good match.
In my last year of University at Western in the Ivey Business program I spent a lot of time deciding what career path I wanted to take. Working in a start-up is where I always saw myself, allowing me to combine my interests in technology and fitness with the excitement and challenge of a new business.
Looking for a role in social media marketing, FHMatch could not be more perfect for me. I immediately saw the tremendous potential in the business model, having struggled with the same problems the site was looking to solve. I am excited to be part of the team and to help users realize all FHMatch has to offer.
