MEET OUR STAFF
I am the Fitness Coordinator here at the Civic Centre. I've been sporty my entire life, playing multiple sports through my school years. Basketball took me through university where I studied Therapeutic Recreation. I continued to play basketball in France professionally for 12 years. Needless to say that training and fitness were a major part of my life. I decided to study it at the Université de Lyon taking a two year degree called "Métier de la Forme". I have been working in fitness since 2009. I have trained basketball teams as well as individuals. I also teach group classes. I enjoy pushing people to achieve their goals and along the way surpass their limits! I'm also trained in the Les Mills concepts: Body Balance, Body Combat, Body Attack and RPM.

I am the newly appointed Exercise & Wellness Specialist here at the Civic Centre. I have always had an active lifestyle. Speed walking & home fitness videos were an integral part of my routine when my family was young. In 2011 I "bit the bullet" and completed a certification with CanFit Pro as a Fitness Instructor Specialist. In 2012, I earned my Part 1 in Yoga with East to West Yoga in Toronto, ON. I have never looked back from either of these decisions. Sharing my knowledge of balanced and active lifestyle as well as developing a "fitness family" are two of my biggest motivators every day. Maintaining strength, flexibility, nutrition and balance are key factors to a happy & healthy lifestyle. This is my personal goal every day and one I love to share!
