“As an Exercise Science major and collegiate athlete I was always on the search to spread my passion of health and fitness while finding ways to make my body feel and function better. The non-traditional workout styles at Viva are exactly that, non-traditional exercises that make your body feel and function better. I'm the resident personal trainer at Viva and am always looking for ways to help others find their passion in health in wellness."

Born and raised in a small town in Canada, hockey and soccer were a huge part of my life. In my journey of wanting to become a pro athlete I suffered from a severe injury in a soccer game, where I severed 3 of the 4 ligaments in my left knee. After 2 years on crutches, 4 surgeries, constant PT and learning to walk again I realized my goal of going pro probably wouldn’t happen. One doctor told me to find a sit-down job for the rest of my life and that I’d never be able to play sports again. I left his office and said to myself “nope!”
One year later I was product testing running shoes for New Balance, playing hockey, and attending fitness classes every week, I’ve always had a passion for fitness and for helping others reach their goals (no matter what they are, fitness or otherwise). My heart longs to help women feel beautiful and confident. My love for fitness increased beyond measure (which I didn’t think was possible) after getting my certification in Barre.
I absolutely love teaching and I am so excited to be part of this amazing team here at VivaFit! I am brand new to Boise (relocation for my hubby’s job). I am excited to explore this new city and meet all you amazing people! I am an artist, entrepreneur, fitness, fashion and coffee lover, always up for an adventure and LOVE travelling! Can’t wait to meet you all, and see you in class!
