About Me

I enjoy living a healthy and active lifestyle, working with like-minded people. Whether it is going to the gym, training and enjoying the outdoors. I have a genuine love for working with children both in a solecharge capacity for private families and a group capacity through fitness programs for school holiday programs and after school programs.  I have worked with children ranging in age from 6 months to teenage years so am familiar with organising daily routines including age appropriate activities, fun daily outings, preparing bottles/snacks/meals and enjoying engaging with the children on all levels and understanding each individual child's needs.
