Fun Q & A

Place of Birth? Prince George, BC. However I grew up in Victoria.

What was your first job? My mother owned a Deli called Ramon's Deli and Country Cuisine (I have no idea who Ramon is!). I worked there on weekends and holidays and as a result I have an appreciation for marzipan pigs and kosher pickles. 

Favorite food? Chocolate of course (especially Lindt's chocolate Chili).  Avocados and apple crisp, I LOVE apple crisp!

What is your favorite piece of fitness equipment? ​That would have to be the Pilates reformer. I think it's a great tool for people of all ages and abilities.

What would you like to be known for professionally? ​My ability to relate to everyone's needs, helping each individual to the best of my ability.

Favorite book? ​Anything by Maeve Binchy, especially her older novels like ​Circle of Friends, and ​Light a Penny Candle.

 You unexpectedly have the entire day off to yourself, what do you do? ​Two words... Spa Day. Well, maybe a little coffee and some reading in bed to start followed by a run through Seal Bay or a workout in our studio. Then off to the spa for a steam, massage and some relaxation. Wine will definitely be involved ;-). 

What's next?  ​Oh boy, well.... I have a pretty hefty goal of completing a degree in Recreation Therapy Additionally, after too many years of absence my soul is so happy to be back dancing. I would like to starting performing and/or teaching again in some capacity.
