I have had a love for sports and activity for as long as I can remember. At 18, I trained as a kayaking, rafting, climbing and mountaineering guide. When that didn’t quite hit the spot, an interest in health and fitness drew me to study Personal Training, and I spent an enjoyable five years working in a world class gym in Wellington.

After a stint working for a fun and creative outdoor workout company in London, which combined my skills as a personal trainer and my love of the outdoors, I haven’t looked back. I now run Wild Workouts, which is my own outdoor workout business.

I have a great work-life balance as I realised years ago that the demands of my job requires efficient use of time and more importantly great nutrition. Exercise has kept me happy and healthy and I think everyone should find the time to do exercise everyday in some shape or form.

“…everything you need to get fit and look great is all around, get outdoors and transform yourself!”

I work with people to help them overcome chronic health challenges or achieve health goals that they haven’t been able to achieve alone. My aim is for you to take charge of your health and happiness by providing practical tools, education and inspiration. I am a naturopath and medical herbalist – that means I have been trained to look for the underlying cause of health challenges, and address the imbalance with personalised nutrition, lifestyle changes and herbal medicine. It’s not a one-size fits all approach – I don’t advocate one way of eating or living for every person. My job is to help find what works best for you.

I’m a huge fan of exercising, especially in nature, and know the fun of Wild Workouts first hand. I’ve also practiced yoga for 10 years, so I know how connected the mind and body are, and how important our mind is in maintaining a balanced and healthy life. I particularly enjoy the challenges of working with people to turn around habitual patterns that do not serve their health.

In my spare time I love to read, explore Wellington’s trails, practice yoga and attempt to grow food in my back garden.
