About The Event
Helping you navigate the balance of caring for yourself and your loved one, utilizing expertise in yoga, fitness and nutrition. Mitzi Perez will provide personal insights gained from juggling self-care amidst the responsibilities of caregiving for her father and maintaining a full-time job.
Mitzi works as an accountant for a Canadian non profit and is a former caregiver to her father, who battled ALS for 10 years, ultimately passing away in September 2022. When she’s not mastering spreadsheets, you’ll find her working on her left hook at the boxing studio, indulging in quality time with her loved ones, hunting down the perfect oat latte, or working on her side hustle - Almonds for ALS.
3 years into her caregiving journey, she suffered from burnout and learned firsthand the importance of self care. In 2018, she published the e-book Thrive Through Self Care - a guide to kicking stress, depression, and burnout to the curb.
