“Away from Pilates I love to be outside and enjoy playing tennis, walking and running with my dog, travelling to new and sometimes old places and am at my happiest spending time socialising and laughing with my family and friends. I feel blessed and privileged doing something I love and helping to improve the lives of many people.”

”My career teaching Fitness Classes began In Sydney at the height of the Aerobics boom. I’ve taught in Ireland and classes in the UK have included childrens Fitness in Schools, Aerobics for Ethnic minority groups, Pilates for people with mixed disabilities (MS, Stroke, CP), Corporate Pilates and Aqua.
