"Enhance the quality of life for all community residents"
I have dedicated my entire personal and professional life to physical fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. My success in sports and fitness is a direct result of my natural abilities, dedication and commitment to sports excellence – which led me to become an Olympian.
As a former elite athlete, I traveled the globe with the Canadian Olympics working with and gaining knowledge from some of the top sport, fitness, and health and wellness professionals in the world. In making the decision to relocate to Costa Rica, I was looking for a community that aligned with my core values: healthy and active lifestyle; love for nature and the outdoors; safe and diverse community. The vibe and energy of the Costa Ballena region, along with the Pacific Ocean, rain forest and blue skies - all coming together as one was an unforgettable experience. My spiritual journey led me to a place of belonging where I can be one with the natural elements. It inspires me to bring my knowledge of fitness, sports and health to the Costa Ballena community. I look forward to establishing my personal training and athletic development programs to further enhance the quality of life for all community residents.
