What Motivates you about being a Motivator?

I’ve been obsessed with maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle since losing my dad to a preventable heart disease (emphasis on “balanced” as I will never turn my back on chocolate). I aim to live each day vivaciously, learning something from each person that I cross paths with. Being a motivator provides me the opportunity to meet and learn from so many people while sharing my experiences. The YYC Cycle community has been my saving grace through some difficult times and I hope to manifest that nondiscriminatory family-like environment in my classes. Whether you’re new to spin or you’ve attended 500 classes, I look forward to learning from you. 

How would you describe your classes at YYC CYCLE?

Bootylicious! I love music that makes you want to break out into a booty-poppin’ dance frenzy. Despite the fact that I was a competitive dancer for years, my dance moves are akin to the Carlton dance. When you attend my class, I hope you leave your inhibitions at the door and leave my class feeling lifted - whether that’s your spirit, energy or booty. I have an eclectic taste in music - playing everything from rap to Disney remixes but you’ll always know when one of my favourites is playing cuz I’ll have a geeky grin from ear to ear. 

Who's your favourite Disney character?

Stitch - slightly destructive and misunderstood but he means well and he's friggen cute (in an "ugly blue alien" kind of way).

What's your Bucket List Item?

Travel to two new countries each year!
