IMG_0082My passion for nutrition and fitness began in 2011 when, at the young age of 30, I experienced burnout. During that difficult time in my life, I battled debilitating insomnia and chronic digestive issues. Experiencing burnout was a wake up call; a sign that I needed to slow down, re-examine my lifestyle and take better care of myself.

In 2012 I decided to take charge of my own health and went back to school to study Holistic Nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. By learning how to eat clean, exercise according to my body’s needs, and connect with my spiritual side, I was able to improve my digestion, sleep, mood, energy and weight. As a result, I have become passionate about sharing my knowledge with others.

I have been teaching fun and energizing Zumba Fitness classes since 2013 . Currently, I am in the process of becoming certified to teach Essentrics.  Over the years, I have had the pleasure of teaching inspiring individuals of all ages and ability levels.

I strive to help participants BUILD their physical fitness, strength and self-confidence. I also aim to EMPOWER participants to take charge of their own health by teaching them how to FUEL their body through optimal nutrition.

hope to see you in a class soon. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
