Hometown: Calgary, AB

Why do you love Barre? It's that sweet barre burn that made me fall in love; I admit, it is a love/hate relationship! It is so intense but the benefits I have seen in my muscles and the improvement in my strength and endurance makes those 'teeny-tiny-little pulses' worth every second.

What is your guilty pleasure? Red wine and chocolate are my biggest weaknesses…and peanut butter.

What is a secret talent of yours? Singing maybe? But it’s not a secret; I sing all the time! Heck, maybe I sound terrible and nobody tells me? Perhaps I simply enjoy the sound of my own voice but I do honestly love to sing.

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My sisters and my momma; they are my besties and I find them hugely inspirational.
