I'm a runner living, running, exercising and having fun in beautiful Nanaimo. I like to consider myself as Nanaimo's Running Concierge. I love outdoor activities and we are so fortunate to have such wonderful places to run and play in the local parks and on the scenic waterfront. I lead the world famous Nanaimo Bar Trail Run (run, tour and eat).

I have certification in group fitness, boot camps, outdoor fitness, and road running. I've lead outdoor boot camps and road race training groups. I also walk the talk or run the races... including track sprints, trail and road, having recently placed first in my age group at the GoodLife Fitness 8K, the Gabriola Island Brickyard Beast 10K and the Mount Washington Trail 8K, plus third in the 100M and first in the Long Jump at the 55+ BC Games.
