I was raised here in Charlottetown, P.E.I. I went to school from grades 1-12 and some secondary education at U.P.E.I here in Charlottetown as well. My love for movement and team spirit started at a young age. I spent a lot of my school years participating in team sports and taking on leadership roles in sports such as hockey, soccer, rugby, and softball.
My first actual dose of teaching fitness classes was when I turned 19 years old. I coached a class named UFIT all across P.E.I and I loved it. In my early 20’s I decided that I wanted to move across the country to Edmonton, Alberta. This is where coaching clients got more serious for me. I started attending a gym in the downtown area of Edmonton, where I met a very close friend of mine and my first ever professional personal trainer. It wasn’t long before I decided to get certified and applied at the gym I was training in.
While training my clients in Edmonton, I also kept busy with my own personal fitness goals and trying new activities. In 2014 I competed in The Northern Alberta BodyBuilding Association show. I did a “Tough Mudder” race that was 17 kms long and included 21 military designed obstacles, I ran a half of a marathon in Banff Alberta, and I also played Australian Rules Football for the Edmonton Emus.
Eventually I decided to move home to be closer to my family and friends. After living on P.E.I for sometime I knew I was missing something in my life but I wasn’t quite sure what it was until I tried a class at Kinetic Fitness. I can still remember my first class. The community was so welcoming and safe after attending some classes, Charlottetown truly started to feel like home again to me. I knew I wanted to work with the personal trainers here and develop my skills as an athlete and as a coach so I decided to apply for a position! Fast forward a couple of years and here we are today! I have accomplished many personal goals and look forward to continuing growing with this community. I have coached many classes, semi private groups, and personal training clients over the past 2 years here at kinetic and look forward to helping many others accomplish their goals for years to come.
