About

An ACE certified Personal Trainer 1997 and ACE Medical Exercise Specialist since 2001, I have worked with numerous clients with a wide variety of goals, health issues and exercise preferences. Self employed in my high-end Personal Training Studio in S. Surrey/White Rock, BC, Canada, since 2005, specializing in "functional exercise" training, I offer private, semi-private, small group, and outdoor fitness training. As a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, I've moved into Health Coaching and Culinary Coaching to help my clients learn the importance of healthy nutrition and how to implement home cooked meals, well stocked pantries and healthy snacks. Certified in 2019 as a National Board certified Health & Wellness Coach, I practice Health Coaching and Culinary Coaching with a broad base of clients through my local community of Physicians and also as a member of the Program Faculty of CHEF Coaching - Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, Boston, MA. (see more information below) In 2015 I earned my Professional Culinary Arts diploma (Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver). As a professionally trained Chef, this has enabled me to expand my Health Coach services and knowledge to launch a very exciting Culinary Coaching program for people wishing to improve their health outcomes by learning more about Home Cooking - includes shopping, safe food storage, cooking skills and planning home cooked meals for time-pressed individuals and families. Additionally, I am an Instructor/Program Faculty member for the very innovative CHEF** Coaching program at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine in Boston, MA. (**Culinary Health Education Fundamentals) where we educate healthcare professionals in Culinary Coaching skills: home cooking skills and resources to help them help their patients become more confident in their own kitchens. I accept referrals from Doctors, Physical Therapists, Long Term Disability Insurance providers
