Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
As a mother of 2 very busy boys, I would love the opportunity to motivate and inspire other moms who perhaps feel that their schedules are too busy to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
I would love the opportunity to educate women on how to stay motivated and ambitious in their goals of being active and healthy mothers and wives.
I have recently competed in my first Fitness Bikini competition and aim to continue growing and devoting more time to achieve the goals I have set for myself in this very competitive sporting environment.
I would also like to explore the opportunity of becoming involved in sports modelling and brand ambassador work.
What are your hobbies?
I love spending time with my husband and my amazing boys. We love going to the beach and spending time outdoors, playing sport and having fun around a weekend braai.
I am also very passionate about staying active and love my weight training sessions and running with my girlfriends.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?
Currently, I am involved in helping various people from all walks of life make healthy choices in terms of their health and wellness.
This ranges from training and exercise to nutrition and everything else in between. If I was fortunate enough to be included in a competition held in such high regard as the USN Face of Fitness, I really feel that it would give me a greater platform from which to further assist people who really want to make a difference in their lives. I also feel that being associated with an internationally recognised brand such as USN will assist me in being able to help others.
