My passion for health and fitness was born into me. At a young age, I can recall watching my dad work out in our garage on his universal gym set. Growing up, I was always competing in something that had to do with running; cross-country, or track, my first love was sprinting.

As a natural progression for any sprinter, I started lifting weights to help me with power, and it’s been part of my life since.

After graduating college, I felt I needed a goal. I ran my first 1/2 marathon in 2007 when I was 21. I loved the challenge it gave me, both mentally and physically.

A year later in 2008, I completed my first marathon when I was 21. After that, I asked myself what was next? What else could I challenge myself to do?

In 2009 I completed my first fitness competition with SAF. Over the next few years, I did a few more competitions and achieved my “Pro” status with SAF (Serious About Fitness) and IDFA (International Drug-Free Association).

I’ve always loved helping others, and it’s why I’m so passionate about what I do. Being able to transform someone’s body and mind has given me so much more than any race, or any competition has ever given back to me. The satisfaction of knowing I’ve positively influenced someone’s life is incredible.

I strive to be like a cavewoman. And let’s be clear, I am by no means a paleontologist, so let’s not get overly technical on the term. What I mean, is that I think about how cavewoman might have lived, and I use that to help guide some of my choices about topics that have become overcomplicated as we humans have evolved. So, where some may ask “what would Jesus do,” I find myself asking “what would cavewoman do?” I apply it to almost everything — nutrition, exercise, sex, parenting…what would cavewoman do? This simple question has helped me create some simplicity and common sense in a world that is often complex and nonsensical.

After having danced at an elite level for the past 18 years (Dutch National Ballet, Vienna, Zurich, Dusseldorf, The Royal Ballet, London), I know what it takes to get in & stay in shape. In my career as a dancer, I dealt with many personal injuries from big to small as well as a host of digestive issues which is what sent me on my road to becoming a strength, conditioning and lifestyle coach and to seek out the best information. It was a long road to recovery but I learned so much from it and now I want to use the knowledge that I have to help you.

I have made it a point to take the best courses (Poliquin, Chek, Ido Portal, Liebenson, Cressey, I am currently enrolled in MSc Dance Science) & continue to keep learning & updating my knowledge every year. At present, I work outside and in a gym. I work closely with The Dutch National Ballet & Ballet Academie in Amsterdam where I provide training & nutritional advice for the dancers.

I offer a wide range of services to fit whatever it is you need. I will help you achieve your goals whatever they may be, by taking a holistic approach to training, nutrition, supplementation & lifestyle.
