I have been involved in fitness, allied health and nutrition for more than 20 years. My passion for nutrition began in my 20’s and 30’s when I was a competitive bodybuilder. I realized the power and importance of nutrition to become a better athlete and a heathier busy mother of two. As a person who struggles with my own weight, I had read every diet and tried everything on the market. It can be confusing and overwhelming to wade through the varied and often conflicting information. I understand what my clients are feeling because I have lived it. As a trainer, I can help you learn how to transform your body. But – if I can work alongside you to optimize your nutrition- it can transform your life.
