I started teaching group fitness classes as a volunteer while I was at MHC taking my Fitness Leadership Diploma in 1999. I have had a passion for group fitness since I was a teenager and my mom and I would attend step & high – low classes together. I am certified through CanFit Pro as a Fitness Instructor Specialist and Personal Trainer Specialist with certifications in Aqua fit, cycling & Group Fitness from the YMCA . In the last ten years I have had problems with my spine which changed my focus somewhat becoming certified in Power Yoga through Power Yoga Canada in 2014. I have taught fitness for Marla off and on since she opened her studio 10 years ago and HB has remained my favourite place to teach and attend. I currently work casual at MHPS in records dept and I am also in school full time taking Administrative Assistant. I feel incredibly lucky to have Marla and her staff accommodate my wacky schedule. My passions outside of fitness is my 2 retired rescue greyhounds Loki & Leda who are 12 years old and my husband of 4 years. My husband started a plumbing business 3 years ago which also keeps us very busy. I currently teach 9:15 on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s depending on my work schedule alternating with Jessica or Marla.
