Hi there, I am so happy you found my website. I know you are here for a reason whether it may be motivation, inspiration, finding balance, learning how to live a more natural life using essential oils, or building the business of your dreams. I believe that we are all the CEO’s of our life and we are in full control of what path we choose to take. Life is a journey, please join me as I share mine.
I have always been passionate about fitness and health. My fitness journey began after the birth of my first child Evi in 2008. I gained a substantial amount of weight from my pregnancy and I felt unhappy with my body and uncomfortable in my own skin. I knew I was out of shape and had developed poor eating habits and that in order to feel better and be the best mother I could be I needed to make a change. I decided to set a goal to compete in my first fitness show. With the right guidance and healthy nutrition in 2009 I stepped on the fitness stage for the first time. Since then the I have competed in more then ten fitness shows including two Canadian Nationals Shows and the Arnold Amateurs in 2013.
I also began fitness modelling after the birth of my second child Jack in 2011. I was contacted by Oxygen Magazine to come out for a test photo shoot because they heard about my story and wanted to have me come for a test shoot. I will never forget that day, it was a dream come true being on the Oxygen Magazine set. Working with Oxygen Magazine opened up so many doors in my fitness modelling career; I have since worked with Oxygen on numerous occasions and have also worked with over ten international fitness publications including Women’s Health & Fitness, Fitness Magazine, Natural Muscle, Inside Fitness, Strong Magazine, Sweat Equity, OptiMYz, and Muscle Memory. I continue to work with these publications in various capacities including modelling for many covers and features, writing articles, giving expert advice, and creating workouts.
In addition to print work, I also work with major gyms on commercial projects such as Goodlife Fitness Clubs, Madonna’s Hard Candy Fitness, and Revkor. I work with large sporting brands such as Reebok on commercial prints and advertisements. I am an ambassador with ALLMAX Nutrition and a sponsored athlete with NovaForme’s organic, vegan protein line of supplements.
I had a great competing career and enjoyed the process and made some amazing friends along the way; however, I realized that my true passion was being behind the camera inspiring women and mothers through my images as an influential, fit mom, and fitness model.
Working in the fitness industry has been very rewarding. It has taught me a lot about myself and has helped grow into the women that I am today. Through my journey I have learned about living a healthy lifestyle; finding balance with exercise and food; and most of all it taught me about how to find balance in all aspects of my life from family, children, friends, fitness, nutrition, and career.
My whole life changed in 2013 when I was rushed in for emergency surgery because I had gone completely septic due to a ruptured appendix that was misdiagnosed. This almost took my life, it made me very ill, and I suffered a great deal with my recovery. Going through this ordeal helped me to realize that there is more to health than eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. I began to pay more attention to what I was putting in and on my body, and at that time I was introduced to certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils. I started to incorporate essential oils into my life by removing synthetics and chemicals from the products in my home, switching to an all natural self-care regime, and using them to enhance the health and wellbeing of my family.
I saw the power that using essential oils brought to my life, and I fell in love with them. I am now passionate about sharing and educating others on the use of essential oils so they too can experience the power of oils. In fact, one of the most fulfilling things I do today is mentor women and men who are passionate about health and taking a more natural approach to their lives.
Essential oils were my missing puzzle piece. I feel healthier, more vibrant, and stronger now then I ever have. And more than that I feel empowered as a women and mother to know that I now have access to the right tools to create the life that I want for myself and my family.
