I am one of those very rare people that is lucky enough to be able to say My Job is My Hobby and My Hobby is My Job.
I am an IFBB Women’s Physique Pro. The last fifteen plus years of my life have been dedicated to fitness both personally and professionally. I have had a successful competitive career beginning in 2007. I have many wins to my credit at the divisional, provincial and national level in both Canada and the US in both lightweight and middleweight women’s bodybuilding and more recently in Women’s Physique. In 2015 I became Canada’s Top Amateur Women’s Physique Competitor to date capturing both the Open and Master’s Overall Titles at the Canadian Nationals earning me not one but two IFBB Pro Cards. Since then I have had consistent strong showings in all the IFBB Pro Shows I have competed in.
I have been personal training full time for over a decade. I have a Physical Education Diploma, a Business Degree specializing in Sport and Recreation as well as countless other industry specific certifications.

I have worked extensively with a wide range of clients. While I prefer to not have a specialization a “Niche” of training clients with years and years of training experience has developed organically for me. These clients require a specific level of expertise and often more unique and creative training methods to make the desired changes to their physiques and to allow them to break through some very comfortable plateaus.
My training purpose and passion tends to come full circle back to my love of the Competition World.

I have experience working with both male and female clients in almost all physique disciplines from the divisional through to the National Level. I believe firmly in only accepting a limited number of competitor clients each season because I truly believe someone that takes on this very difficult and specific challenge should have a coach that can invest the time and attention necessary to support them in this journey.


I am here to Teach You, I am not here to be your sole motivation for showing up to the gym everyday. My goal is always to create good habits and a solid knowledge base about Exercise, Fitness and Nutrition so that it becomes a natural part of your life. Ultimately I want to know that clients I have worked with continue to train and pursue fit active lifestyles through whatever activities they enjoy the most.
