A St Francis Xavier Graduate, BSC Human Kinetics, I have been in the fitness industry since graduation in 2000, bringing 17 years of experience as a passionate and loving guide. A CANFITPRO certified Fitness Instructor Specialist and Personal Trainer Specialist, I am so excited to share my love and passion with all of you at Pictou County Yoga & Fitness. I took the plunge and took over ownership of the studio in June of 2017 and couldn't be happier. It has been a dream of mine to own a fitness studio for as long as I can remember and it has been an amazing adventure so far. Flow yoga, PiyoLIVE, aerobic training, athletic training, kick boxing, weight lifting, boot camp, Zumba, Aquafit, TRX suspension training, Piloxing, and step are just some of the classes that I have lead during my career as a coach and guide. Find me at the studio leading CardioMix, Knockout, Transform, Yoga Flow, REPS, Sport and who knows what's next! I'm always up for new ideas and different ways to move our bodies, cause let's face it, it feels great!
"I believe our quest for health and fitness is a lifelong journey that changes along the way as we change as individuals. Therefore I believe in trying new things and pushing our boundaries to become more well rounded. It truly is my passion to lead and help other people on their health and wellness journeys."
