Vivienne has long been fascinated by the Alexander Technique, having had lessons since the 1990s with several well-recognised teachers in both Canada and the UK. In 2013 she decided to turn her passion into a profession and share the Alexander Technique with others. Vivienne completed the three-year teacher training course at The Ottawa School of the Alexander Technique in 2016.

Prior to her training, Vivienne worked as a visual artist as well as an art therapist in the mental health field. Vivienne also holds a deep interest in mindfulness meditation, which has parallels with the Alexander Technique, helping to bring further awareness to the mind and body.

She teaches the Alexander Technique from her home in Sandy Hill, Ottawa, where she has lived since 1999.
