What inspired you to work with NVRC and become an instructor?
It's a great organization and the hours are flexible. I am a disciplined, self starter and really appreciate that the rec centre trusts me to come and do a great job.
What do you enjoy about teaching?
I love inspiring and making people feel better in their day and also with the quality of their lives in general. Making them smile!
I’ve started teaching my stretch class the benefits of the foam roller and lacrosse balls for self myo-fascial relief and now a lot of my students are so enthused that they have bought their own rollers and do this exercise proactively on their own. I feel I’m making a difference by inspiring people to go beyond the class and develop a less painful body to move with.

Mountain biking, volunteering with my dog, hiking, camping, reading, creating art, cooking, travelling
