6 Years ago I was very overweight. 300 + pounds. Through diet and exercise I
changed my life in the most precious way. As a woman in her late 40’s who has
struggled with her weight for the majority of her life I understand completely how it feels to want to be healthier, want to look better and most importantly FEEL better in your own skin.

September 2022 I was looking for a career change. I wanted to be in a positive
environment, to be surrounded with support and like-minded people. Cue an
opening at Valley Fitness Centre, and again my life changed for the better. I have
found my new home at VFC. The supportive Team, the amazing Members AND the push to do more.

Becoming a CPT was an obvious next step for me. I am a very passionate person, I
want to help others succeed in their fitness goals. To be able to help guide, teach,
and encourage someone is a reward in itself, seeing the plan put together and the
outcome on the other end is indescribable.

I am just like you, I have my own goals, hopes, and dreams. I am a constant work
in progress. I have a number of courses in my cue that I am currently working on to be able to provide you with the total package when it comes to your Health Goals. I don’t have to try to put myself in your shoes, I have walked in them, and now I want to help emPOWER you too. Let’s get strong together.

Having grown up in rural Ontario I spent a lot of my time as a child being physically active and outdoors. As I got older, I directed that energy to sports playing almost anything from soccer to rugby. I played competitive rugby for about 10 years from high school to the Quebec Women’s Premier League, to being Provincially ranked at Algonquin College, and Nationally ranked at the University of Ottawa. We would train five days a week with one game a week, in that time, I developed discipline, structure, determination, and a passion for fitness.

As I transitioned out of competitive sport and into the “real world”, I remained an athlete at heart. These days I can be found farming vegetables, mountain biking, or running marathons through the mountains. Although my sport and fitness goal shave changed over the years the outcome remains the same; to live a healthy physically active life. That is why I want to help my clients achieve whatever their goals may be.

I am Certified as a Personal Trainer, with a specialization in Women’s Fitness including women of all ages, stages of life, and pre/post-natal women. I am also a Certified Nutrition Coach. I believe that working consistently as a team is the key to success, especially when wanting to make a change to improve your life. I’m no tone to sugarcoat things and tell you things will be easy when they are in fact hard. When things get hard you can lean on me for support and guidance because that’s what teammates do. You may be just starting your fitness journey, or you may have already started, no matter what stage you’re in I’m here to help.
