My passion for fitness began in 2012 when I set out to solve challenges with pain and support my mental health.
Working with a coach and learning strategies to help myself was empowering and ignited a passion to help others build resilient, strong bodies and minds. I spent the next decade learning and building a career in the fitness industry.
In 2022 I became chronically ill with an auto-immune disease. After 18 months of failed treatments, debilitating side effects and watching my health nosedive it was time for another approach.
In 2023 I went through a total colectomy (removal of my large intestine). The surgery left me with an ostomy.
Writing down my story helped me to makes sense of what happened and my blog was born. Through sharing my written story I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to share about my journey in live settings and thus began my advocacy work.
I would not be where I am today without my foundation in fitness, which was my guiding light through my darkest days. As a coach I continue to work with folks from a wide range of backgrounds, abilities and ages. I believe fitness should be available to everybody.
