In 2019 Ponnie became the Country Leader for Canada and the USA for Kangatraining and is their North American Master Trainer.
Having been exposed to Babywearing through her sister, Ponnie had to try it with the birth of her daughter first hand. The benefits of wearing where so evident that she since has gone on to become a Certified Babywearing Educator and Consultant with the Center for Babywearing Studies. Ponnie also holds a certificate from Go Diaper Free in both Elimination Communication and Potty Training.
Though she enjoys the serenity in moving and creating on her own, her passion to help others makes her a natural born teacher. She does not believe in the phrase "I can't" and often you will hear her say "You can, you just need to learn how" In her free time, Ponnie likes to give back to the community. She is involved in different charity and outreach programs and is the founder of #warmvancouver.
