Meet Our Team
Business Owner & Head Trainer
I currently work part-time as a physical education and primary school teacher on the southern Gold Coast. As a mother of two energetic young kids, I understand the importance of developing healthy and active habits from an early age. We enjoy a diversity of physical activities such as surfing, swimming, hiking, bike riding, running, dancing, cheerleading and gymnastics.
I have always had a passion for health and fitness and participated in many different sports over the years. I developed a specific love for gymnastics and have over 20 years experience both as an athlete and as a coach. I have also competed in a variety of track and field events as a national athlete in Canada.
I am excited in continuing her passion in health and fitness with the development of Fitletica Kids Outdoor Fitness!

I am originally from Scotland but came to Australia eight years ago and have been working with children ever since. Alongside being a Fitletica trainer I work part time as a nanny and babysitter. I am passionate about health & fitness and love to be outdoors being active. My interests include hiking, swimming, cycling, snowboarding, yoga and HIIT training.
I am enthusiastic to create an environment that is inspiring, positive, safe and adaptive to each child’s needs while encouraging children to lead active, happy & healthy lives.
