For those unfamiliar with you, can you tell us a bit about your background and how you got involved in the fitness industry?
Healthy eating and living an active lifestyle have always been a huge part of my life. Growing up, my parents always took us to activities and encouraged us to get outside. Throughout school, I played on the volleyball team. Once school was finished, I wanted to find something challenging and competitive. I started going to the gym consistently, and soon I became addicted!
My whole family enjoys the outdoors!

How did you become involved with Magnum Nutraceuticals? And tell us a little bit about the demos and what you love most about them?
From the beginning, becoming sponsored was always a goal of mine, but I wanted to represent a company I really believed in, not just whatever was handed to me. Throughout my fitness journey, I have used Magnum products and have admired everything about the company. All of Magnum’s ingredients are high quality and pharmaceutical grade; they taste great, and the team behind Magnum really is something special! I approached Magnum earlier this spring, and was blessed with the opportunity of becoming a sponsored athlete.
Several times a month, I host demos at Fitness West in Vernon British Columbia. I give out samples of Magnum products and healthy baked goods with recipe cards. It’s a lot of fun! I enjoy being able to interact with everyone and help them find Magnum products that fit their needs.
I am so very proud to be a part of this team.
