My love for fitness stemmed back many years ago when Rhythmic Gymnastics entered my life. For 15 of those years, I dedicated myself to the endless hours of training, competed as a Provincial athlete and then went on to Coaching. I have been fortunate enough to have developed these skills at an early age and have truly found my passion for coaching and fitness in life.
Perfectly Fit was established in 2012 but the journey didn’t begin there. I registered for my first bootcamp session in 2008 and instantly fell in love with the ladies only group setting and felt myself getting stronger and more confident in the matter of a few weeks. In 2009, I knew that I wanted to change my life, in the way that I could have an influence on other women's health and fitness journeys, just like my trainers and biggest inspirations had given me. I started taking health and fitness courses and my list of certifications began. I started teaching in 2011 and the rest is history. Perfectly Fit has brought so much happiness to my life and it's all because of the wonderful group of women who inspire me on a daily basis.
Outside of being a trainer, you will most likely catch me out in the fresh air reading a book, boating, fishing, camping, or simply relaxing. I love spontaneity, sunsets, cooking, my family, the sunshine, beaches and quality time at home. I like change and the challenge that comes along with it. But most importantly, I love the rewarding feeling and the inspiration that my clients give me in becoming the best trainer that I can be.

I have loved to dance my whole life, and when I found Zumba, I knew it was the workout for me. I grew up doing ballet and jazz, performing twice yearly in full-length ballets with Les Petits Ballets and trained for a summer at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. As I moved into the upper years of high school, I transitioned from dancing to teaching creative dance, pre-ballet, jazz and drama for Les Petits Ballets and for the City of Ottawa at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre.
My love for teaching became my career, as I studied to become an elementary school teacher and began attending. my first Zumba classes at the gym. I instantly became a fan, always looking forward to the next class, and loved how an hour would fly by. To this day, Zumba remains that hour where all my worries and thoughts disappear and I can get lost in the music and dancing! I completed my Zumba Instructor training in June of 2009, and have been teaching for the City of Ottawa in Manotick since September of 2009.
When I'm not teaching Zumba, I am with my two, young children (ages 5 and 1 year old), chasing, playing, and hanging out with our family. I loved attending Perfectly Fit Strollerfit classes while on maternity leave, and love the sense of community and fun around excellent workouts. I also love to bake, knit, travel, and have wine nights with my girlfriends. I look forward to dancing together soon!
