I AM ALFA because I overcome a lot in my life at such young age. I love to inspire people to continuously do better, I find that I am a good support system for those who believe they are failing.

I’m originally born in Hamilton Ontario, moved to Nanaimo BC when I was 18 and I'm now currently living on my own! When I was 17 I lost 60 lbs., and was battling an eating disorder. I had a fear of eating anything that was put in front of me, I thought that no matter what I ate I was going to immediately gain back that 60 lbs. I took my time to learn about nutrition and surround myself around people who encourage me to do better (as I do to them). Today I am mentally and physically stronger and continuously striving to learn more.

As a trainer what does it mean to you to train your clients? I became a trainer because I didn't want my clients to go through what I went through. I wanted to be a support system and show them the proper techniques of getting to their goals without causing stress on their mental health.

What are the most rewarding things that Fitness has brought you? My support system. Without this journey, I wouldn't have been able to meet my closest friends. My friends and I are able to come together and push through the struggles we are facing as well as share knowledge that may help else grow in the future.

When was the most alfa moment in your life, and why? The most Alfa moment of my life was when I got my personal training certification because I could not only reach my goals but help my clients reach theirs.

How Has Covid-19 impacted your daily life? Covid-19 was a bit of a blessing in disguise because even though I lost one of my jobs due to the virus, I was able to put myself first, take care of my goals and grow as a person mentally and physically. I was able to spend more time reconnecting with myself and my friends (over video call). I have also been able to try out new ways of exercising through calisthenics.
