About Me


You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis


I am a fitness professional specialising in the training of (but not exclusive to) mature aged people.  I work at the Palm Beach Aquatic Centre on the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia as a gym duty manager, personal trainer and group fitness trainer. I teach deep water running, aqua aerobics, mature and motivated weigh sessions and spin.  I also write running programs for any distance from 1500 metres to ultra-marathon. (see my running bio under the tab Fitness Heaven).  I can help you accomplish your fitness goals and lead a healthier more comfortable life.

Although fitness has played a huge part in my life, it is only one element of the person I am.  I am also a writer, an academic and a visual artist with a passion for interior design. I am a qualified florist, a qualified make up artist and an entrepreneur who has owned and operated three businesses (two florists and a fashion store with garments designed and made by me).

I believe life is about learning and challenge which is why I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new.
