Certified Group Exercise Instructor, Master of Arts (Comparative Literature)
I’ve been a Group Exercise Instructor for over 20 years and I still love it! I’m passionate about motivating people to live as healthily and happily as possible, and be the best they can be. I believe that getting the balance right with exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress and social connection has a huge impact on our wellbeing.
I’m a mum of two. I also work as a Content Production Manager for an online training company, and I’m currently training to become a Health Coach.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling, boxing, practicing yoga, skiing (in winter), reading good books and socialising with friends.
