Group Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer

I am a qualified New Zealand Institute of Health and Fitness Registered Fitness Consultant and Personal Trainer, and hold a Bachelor of  Business degree; I am also a mum and wife. I understand the relentless daily demands and juggle that all women face, and how hard it is to find time to invest in yourself; but I also know how rewarding doing so is.

Helping others achieve their goals is my passion. Seeing the changes in my clients is what drives me.

I work alongside my clients no matter their current situation or fitness level, to lose body fat and tone. I am there with them each step of the way to help them keep on track and reach their goals.

It is my pledge to my clients that it won’t be long before their family and friends will be complimenting them on how amazing they look!

I have been training with the Peak for Life fitness community since 2015 and have gained a great deal from the extremely motivated team of trainers. I am excited to join the team of trainers in 2018!


I am currently studying a Commerce degree at Auckland University , I attained a National Certificate in Group Fitness Instruction with the support of Peak for Life and currently furthering my studies with a Personal Training certificate.  I have always been involved in sport, fitness and training at a premier level.  I am passionate about sport and keeping active and look forward to inspiring others to achieve their goals.  


I hope to use my experience of team-based training to integrate teamwork with fitness and exercise.  I enjoy pushing myself to new limits and hope to also drive others in challenging themselves.

Peak for Life was the first gym I ever joined, and it was the catalyst to my passion for fitness. I am no marathon runner or athlete swimmer, but I am motivated to work hard and support everyone on their own fitness journey’s. I am so excited to join the Peak for Life Community in 2019 and work with the team of amazing trainers. 


Peak for Life has encouraged me to study a National Certificate in Group Fitness while I complete my Communications and Business conjoint at AUT.   

I am all about making fitness fun and enjoyable while challenging yourself to achieve your goals. With my 14 years of dance, 5 years of touch rugby and my continuing love for netball, I hope to encourage teamwork throughout each workout. Helping people to achieve their goals is ultimately my goal.

I have been a personal trainer for 2 years working for a private gym in Louisville in America. In 2012 I was successful in gaining a field hockey scholarship to study and play hockey for the University of Louisville. I graduated from the University of Louisville with degrees in Exercise Science and Physical Education in Teaching.

After graduating I spent some time in California coaching hockey at the University of California Davis before moving back to Louisville to pursue my passion in the health and fitness industry.

Now back in New Zealand working at Peak for Life with their team and clients was an opportunity I could not miss. I love helping people achieve their health and fitness goals.

I hope to bring all the knowledge and experience I gained in the US to Peak for Life.
