I was born in Hamilton, Ontario, a city west of Toronto, and have lived in Ontario all my life. I have been fortunate enough to have parents that love to travel so they took my sister and me for vacations to many different destinations around the world. I still love traveling and dream of visiting different countries but there is no home like Canada!
I have a post secondary education and I work in healthcare. In an effort to expand my interests, I decide to take up my passion as a career and began personal training this year. I love helping others to achieve the goals that they desire regarding their body and self esteem.
As a child I was quite hyper-active and my poor mom would have to scrape me off the ceiling each night before bed. Unfortunately, attempts to enroll me in different sports/activities to channel all my energy were futile as I had loyalties to Barbie. Finally, my sister convinced me to join a synchronized swimming team and I spent most of my elementary school years training in the pool. As I entered High School, my focus, as with most teenagers, changed from Barbie to Boys so the best way to be noticed was with cheerleading!
Throughout my high school career, I ran track, skied, and was introduced to the weight room during physical education. I can clearly remember all the girls being VERY impressed by the chest fly machine as soon as the teacher told us it would make our chests bigger. Needless to say, there was a line up of thirteen year old girls trying to use that particular piece of equipment.
As I headed into my twenties, I became determined to try all that I had missed out on. I now avidly snowboard in the winter and practice yoga regularly. I have also flirted with ballet, belly dancing, gymnastics, kayaking, recreational volleyball, and soccer. Although I dabbled in weight training for many years, I didn't really develop a passion for lifting until I met my husband. He has taught me almost everything I know about effective training and has helped to transform my body to what it is today.
Shortly after I began training, I started to become interested in fitness competitions and modeling. I attended as many shows as possible and became an enthusiastic reader of almost every fitness magazine known to man. I secretly wished that I could be one of the beautiful girls on stage and/or in the magazines.
Finally, after four years in the gym, I felt that it was time to give up the chocolate and get ready to compete. I knew that I needed to take my training to another level, so I decided to hire a personal trainer and focus more on my weak points. I have managed to add quite a bit of muscle and sculpt my physique. My first year I competed in the FAME Fitness Model category www.FAMEworldevents.com due to my lack of formal gymnastics training and continued in this rewarding division competing in 7 shows in 7 months. It was a very successful year that allowed me to grow as a person both emotionally and mentally, and as an athlete/business woman.
