For the past 15 years, I have been working in a hospital setting, interacting daily with patients with compromised health. My motivation for endurance sport was born when I realized how fortunate I am to be healthy and mobile. The training became an immediate addiction, as it taught me to value life and began to positively shape my character. My fitness journey began with a few marathons and evolved to cycling across Canada to raise money for Cancer research. Then 4 years ago, I overcame my severe anxiety of the water, took the plunge to learn to swim, and became a triathlete. As the endurance increased, my philosophy for life became overly simplified and apparent….anything in life is 90% mental, and the other 10%, well that’s just mental too. My motivation of marrying the power of a strong mind with physical mobility has allowed me to qualify for the World Ironman Championships 140.6 and 70.3 repeatedly. I am always striving to surround myself with like-minded people, to constantly evolve physically and mentally, in hopes of providing inspiration to others throughout my journey.
