I am a Certified Personal Trainer and lifestyle coach from Vancouver, Canada now living in Monterey, California.

My vast work experience covers a broad range of jobs that fed my love and curiosity for health, science, and food! I spent many years as a producer for the Discovery Channel and Discovery Health, completed an internship with ResearchGate in Berlin, taught cooking classes at the Dirty Apron in Vancouver, worked a variety of cooking and catering jobs, and even worked in a French food truck!

My coaching business grew organically from people asking me for help with their diets, and eventually fitness.

I left the world of television when I moved to California, became NASM Certified Personal Training certified, and started teaching classes and personal training at the Alpha Project, learning from the best coaches on the Monterey Peninsula. 

I am currently also completing my certification with Precision Nutrition.
