What is something you have changed your mind about in the past 2 years?

I’ve changed my mind about a lot in the last two years but the biggest change is around tracking my food. I previously viewed it as restrictive and limiting. Now I feel in control of my intake, my performance and it allows me flexibility. It has also given me more health benefits than I previously believed like consistent energy levels through the day and sleeping through the night.

Who has been the biggest influence on you as a Health and Performance Coach?

It sounds cliche but Janine Shillington. She took me on as a client in 2019, after having my third baby, and saw my potential. She was also the one to give me the nudge and opportunity that I needed to get into coaching. The faith that she has in her clients’ abilities to achieve their goals is something I admire and want to model.

Who has been the biggest influence on you as a person?

My husband Andrew. He does a great job of holding me accountable and calls me on my errors, but he’s also my biggest cheerleader and encourages me to go after my goals. By making daily choices, we’ve created a lifestyle where fitness is a cornerstone, and he’s a great reminder to keep making those daily choices. He and our kids are the reasons I want to become a healthier, better human.

Current Training Goals for Yourself?

My goal every year is to be in the top 10% of females for the CrossFit Open. I’ve achieved that for the past 3 years now so it might be time to revisit my goals.

What made you choose this career path?

My career goal has always been that I work with who I want, where I want and when I want. Flexibility is important to me and this career meets all of the above. It’s really fun to help people define their goals and then give them the tools and roadmap to get there.
