Bonnyville No 87, AB T0A
Easily recognized on the street with her signature look – ball cap, sunglasses, pigtails & big smile is Drayton Valley’s longest operating fitness independent ( 15 years). If it’s true that 60 is the new 40 then I would say I won’t be going anywhere fast. I love what I do and I do what I love!
I am the trainer for 'everyday people' I train people to become better at everyday life and all it throws at you !

Her grass roots beginning in gymnastics coaching for 12 years up to provincial levels made an easy transition to fitness training. All the years of working with bodies in motion required a solid understanding off anatomy & physiology and nutrition.
Is there anything I don’t like – anything choreographed! My early experiences with dance and step aerobic style classes were quite hilarious. So when I found boot camp style workouts and intervals and circuits I loved it! And that is how I train today.
Being in the industry for so many years has many advantages. I am able to work with people from their 20’s to their 60’s and understand their bodies and challenges. It is sort of a ‘been there , done that thing’. A recent go round with cancer has also given me the opportunity to understand more what some of my clients with similar health issues are going through. And feeling the effects of things like arthritis and some other small age related issues prompts me to research more so I can address my client’s needs more .
