For me being a leader of one means honoring the opportunity I have to be my best self-everyday. It means sharing positive energy and recognizing that what I choose to say, do and whom I choose to spend my time with matters. It means living my life with my values and actions in alignment.
I am a super blessed mother of two beautiful little girls, a passionate High School Health and Physical Education teacher, Coach and Trainer. I have the incredibly fortunate opportunity every day as an educator and coach to be surrounded by inspiring young people. I want my students to always know and understand that they were made to be Amazing!
Sport and physical activity have always been an integral part of my life. The connections I have made with people through this and the valuable life skills I have developed because of these opportunities have helped to define who I am today as a Woman, and for that I am always grateful. I truly believe that when we fill our life with healthy hobbies and amazing and positive people who inspire and challenge us, it makes it so much easier to be our best.
Since my girls were just babies I have told them every time I leave the house that mummy is going to train, to play, to run, etc. so that I can feel Healthy, Happy, Beautiful and Strong. One day when my oldest daughter was just one and sitting in her high chair I was getting ready to leave to go train at Twist and I leaned in to give her a kiss goodbye. When I stood up she raised her little arms above her head and cheered, saying in her little voice Healthy, Happy, STRONG! I cried tears of joy in that moment because not only did it reaffirm to me that what I do and say matters, but it filled my heart to know that as a mother I could help my daughter to be excited to feel all those things, to be all those things, and to live her life to the fullest!
Healthy, Happy, Beautiful and Strong is always my goal, it is what motivates me to be my best, it is my hope for everyone I have the honour to connect my energy with. I want to be proud of the life I've lived and I want to have fun living it.
