Hi there, I’m Sonia and welcome to Body Moves!
I started my journey as a part-owner of Body Moves here in Sarnia in 2015, before becoming the sole owner/operator in 2020. I have proudly been part of the Sarnia community for almost 18 years and I love serving the needs of my community and the needs of South Western Ontario’s medical professionals!
As we all know, the healthcare sector has been at the forefront of the pandemic, caring for our community during the worst health crises in a century. I’m proud to do my part to help my customers feel great, look great and find their perfect medical uniform that reflects their profession and personality. Our mission here at Body Moves is to support our customers and make their purchasing experience exceptional and inclusive.
We do this by providing high-quality fit, form, function, and tailored medical uniforms for every body type! We carry XXS to 5XL in our women's lines, with the options of petite, regular and tall lengths in pants. We also carry XS to 5XL in our men’s collections, with pants available in short, regular and tall options, ensuring everybody can find their perfect fit. Our uniforms, while cutting-edge and modern, are also comfortable and practical for everyday use. To source the best in medical uniforms, I work with a few select suppliers to bring you the best quality and selection possible, making it easy to find something that you’ll love to wear.
We always do our best to make your shopping experience at Body Moves a great one. Every customer that walks into my store is treated with respect and dignity, honoring their important role as health care providers. There is no judgment here, and we aim to create a comfortable, open, inclusive and safe space where everyone is welcome to shop and experience all that Body Moves has to offer.
I am very proudly a mental health and addiction advocate, supporting our community and those in it who are struggling. Take a look at our advocacy work and fundraising efforts on our social media!
My mission is to make a positive difference in your day, both personally and professionally. Whether you’re shopping in-store or online, we’re here to help you, and we thank you for supporting us!
Being part of Body Moves since 2015 means I have an understanding of industry needs in Southern Ontario & enjoy picking out the highest quality medical uniforms for all of my amazing customers. But not only am I a business owner, I’m also a mother of three, wife & long-time entrepreneur. I’m a people person at heart, and love connecting with my community and doing something I feel makes a real difference.
Starting in 2021, Body Moves started contributing a percentage of sales to Access Open Minds, a mental health and addictions space for youth 11 to 25 and their families who are seeking fast access to education, assessments, counselling and treatment.
In 2022 we also hosted a day cruise in hopes to raise money for Bluewater Health, a mental health unit at our local hospital. After an amazingly successful event, with music provided by our local DJ, DJ Nacho, we managed to raise $4,100. This allowed us to provide MP3 players to Bluewater Health to aid in music therapy for everyone involved in the program.
I am passionate about mental health and addiction in our community & plan to continue supporting local initiatives both within and outside of Body Moves. Keep an eye on our social media channels and here for more of our advocacy work in the future.
