I never stop pushing myself to learn more knowledge through real life experiences. I feel the best ways to learn and teach others is through pushing myself to take on challenges that intimidate and scare me, yet makes me feel excited and anxious. After all, how can I ask my clients to take on something if I don't do it myself! The feeling of acheivement of completing a goal is like no other!!
My strengths include developing programs for performance enhancement, body fat loss, developing lean muscle, endurance training and integrating core stability. I have a wide range of clients, both male and female ranging from the ages of 85 to 12 years of age.

I enjoy weight training, running, swimming, cycling and triathlons. I absolutely love being outdoors in the sunshine! I have two wonderful sons, ages 13 and 19 who are actively involved in soccer and basketball. I love watching thier growth and acheivements in all they put their minds to.....hoping someday to complete a triathlon together! In my down time, I love to sit down with a glass of red and a book and relax:)
IRONMAN WHISTLER 2015 - This was a huge accomplishment for me! Finished in just under 15 hours. The epic story of this event was the weather! The event is at the end of July where the weather should be sunny and warm, but instead its was cold, wet and windy. I was so happy to just finish!
CHALLENGE PENTICTON, CANADA 2016 - 3/4 Ironman distance. This was by far my best overall time in a long course triathlon at 8:35:05. The weather was perfect, in the mid 70's.
NPC FIGURE COMPETITION, BEND OREGON MAY, 2017. I thought training for an Ironman was hard (believe me, it still is!) however training for a bodybuilding figure competition was really tough! The complete dedication to the timing on nutrition and quality of workouts were intense. I came in 5th in Master's Overall figure.
WHAT'S NEXT? I want to travel! I am anticipating competing in Elbaman in 2018. This is a Ironman distance triathlon on Elba Island, a few miles from the coast of Italy!!
