Originally born and raised in Melville, SK, I have always been an advocate of living an active life. Growing up I played as many sports possible, including hockey, baseball, volleyball, and golf. And after spending multiple summers living in the Canadian Rockies, I discovered a passion for being active in the outdoors. It has shaped the life I live today. I am an avid (trail) runner, mountain biker, and adventure junkie.
Aside from working as a High School teacher, I officiate elite levels of hockey throughout Western Canada, and as a level VI official, I have worked many championships at the provincial, national and international levels.
My experience and training with hockey, paired with my physical education background and fitness certifications, has allowed me to continue to coach athletes in power-skating and dry-land conditioning camps as well.

I was born in Regina SK but moved to Cranbrook,BC where I was raised. BC mountains became my comfort zone where I learned a true interest in outdoor activities such as snowboarding, wakeboarding, biking and hiking in all terrain. Besides outdoor activities, sports have been the main love in my life. I started as a provincial ranked figure skater and finished with playing Volleyball for the College of the Rockies where I received MVP and Provincial awards for my sport and acquired CSEP certified personal trainer certificate. I later returned to my roots to finish my Bachelors of Kinesiology at the University of Regina. With a competitive attitude, I strive to excel at any sport and exercise, which in hopes to bring forth my experiences to OTF to push individuals to be successful with their program.
It didn't take long after getting my Office Ed degree to realize my personal career passions were not found behind a desk. I have always been an active person; playing sports in school, track, snowboarding, riding horses at home on the ranch and now chasing my two little girls. My love of pushing my body's limits, being healthy and strong, being with people, and challenging them came alive when I started training...and I was hooked! My passion to see bodies transform, mental barriers shattered and people succeeding in their fitness journey is why I love doing what I do. At Orangetheory, I get to know and join in SO many of your personal progress stories which energizes and pushes me daily!
Bonus Features- I love popcorn and pretzels with hummus. I will always dance to a good beat AND I care for you all more than you know...even when you make ME do burpees.
My hometown is Saltcoats, Sk. where I grew up on a farm and played a
variety of sports. Now I primarily spend my time staying active with
outdoor running, outdoor sports, and OrangeTheory workouts! I came to
Regina to pursue a degree at the University of Regina in Kinesiology and
will be convocating October 18, 2016. Along with my degree I am also a
Certified Personal Trainer. I have experience in personal training,
POPAT/PARE training, and Zumba classes. The beauty of OrangeTheory is
you get the atmosphere and fun environment of group training with the
personal touches that come with one-on-one training. Most of all
OrangeTheory becomes your friends and family on this fitness journey
that we take.
