Starting her mainstream fitness career as a Group Training Manager at one of South Africa’s leading fitness clubs. Her leadership qualities, high work ethic and passion for the industry served her well in this role, which is evident in her own personal achievements.

For me the passion lies in helping people. Finding a way for them to move well and to find joy in the small accomplishments along the way that eventually builds the big picture. I love to be creative and innovative. I see coaching as a two-way interchange of energies and learning.

Spending time with my lovely family. I enjoy spending my free time with the men in my life. I am very much a nature lover so hikes, sea kayaking, beach walks or just chilling at home with a good movie makes me feel refreshed.

I spend free time researching to learn about how other Coaches approach their respective disciplines.

Most of all I love interacting with people and the friends I have made here in NZ.
