Instructor History & Experience:
I first became a certificate exercise professional (fitness instructor) in 2004! I have taught group exercise classes at a range of different gyms over the 17 years, including Fitness Plus, the Calgary Winter Club, the YWCA and Repsol. Athletics have been part of my life since I was young – I feel fortunate to get to continue that path through group fitness classes!

Why I love being an instructor:
I love being an instructor as it connects me with my fitness family! Repsol is an inspiring place to teach – there are so many options for people to explore their fitness – everyone moving at their own pace! Exercise is one of my favorite self-care strategies – it recharges me physically and mentally. I enjoy sharing that energy with others and supporting others in their wellness journeys.


Fun fact about yourself:
I love the mountains and find the journey of immersing myself in “mountain therapy” rejuvenating!
