Personal Profile

My life really is like a box of chocolates! A colourful assortment of people, places and experiences that bring me joy. Wife and mother are without a doubt my favourites and always keep the box full to the brim and exciting. In 2015, I embarked on the challenging creation of a brand new flavour, small business owner! At its soft delicious centre is Just Believe Fit, a relaxed and friendly wellness studio which invites to people make friends with their bodies and create realistic and sustainable mind body fitness programs. Using a blend of high quality ingredients drawn from my past as a School teacher, Movement Educator and Fitness Instructor this taste sensation appeals to lovers of Pilates, Yoga, Stretching, Barre and Body Conditioning and is of particular benefit to mature bodies.The added bonus is that it can also be delivered straight to the your place of work and custom designed for different palates.
