Real People. Real Results.
After the birth of our third child Harper, I experienced postnatal depression and was seeking an outlet to feel like the “old me”… we lived interstate – disconnected from family and close friends…
I always loved exercise and how it honestly makes you feel better… so I started at the local gym, but the experience wasn’t thrilling and I often wondered why it felt so disconnecting… it wasn’t until we returned from living interstate that I knew it was time to start my own fitness business. I couldn’t get a start within the fitness industry as I had 3 young children and wasn’t able to work the hours they required.
I knew that I could provide a service for women to come and feel like their old self again, and become comfortable and confident within their own skin.
I started classes in the local scout hall and quickly outgrew the venue… In November of 2019 I was able to relocate to our new premises in Cardiff and our business continues to grow daily with ladies reaching out to achieve their very own success stories of living their best life.
We would be honoured if you joined us on creating the largest movement in Lake Macquarie for women in fitness.
A little bit about myself: In 2013, I made the big decision to relocate to Newcastle from Ohio, after meeting my Australian husband in 2011. I’m now mum to a beautiful 5-year-old girl and two teenage stepsons 15 and 17.
My career started with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a focus in Human Resources. After relocating I pursued my qualifications in Personal Training and Group Fitness which was an area I was always passionate about. I have now commenced pursuing another passion in
becoming a Certified Nutritionist.
Fitness and the fitness industry have always been a large part of my life. My objective has always been to guide and assist women to reach their full potential. Whether it be your first-time setting foot in the gym or your 100 th time, we are all on this journey together and I thrive off encouraging
you to meet and exceed your expectations.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Kirby Bree Fitness Team! The vibe and group dynamics at Kirby’s is so inspiring. Being able to empower women to feel confident to step out of their comfort zones and to see what they’re truly capable of is the most rewarding job ever.
I’m a firm believer in “there’s no goal too big! It’s our mindset that set our limits.”
I have always had a passion for helping others and a love for health and fitness. After a rewarding 10 years living and working in Japan as a corporate language facilitator and then translator, I moved to Lake Macquarie with my partner for a change of pace and to raise our beautiful young family. Upon re-entering the workforce some years later, although busy, healthy and happy, there existed a niggling void on a deeply personal level, a sense that there was something else out there for me.
It wasn’t until 2018 when I decided to return to university as a mature age student to complete a degree in Exercise Sport Science that my light began to fully shine again. The depth of knowledge I have gained through my studies and the opportunity to apply that knowledge in a practical way to helping others on their journey is truly rewarding. My light shines even brighter now that I have found my place within the amazing community at Kirby Bree Fitness and have the incredible opportunity to work along side Kirby and Ash.
As the winner of the Executive Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence in Exercise Sport Science for 3 consecutive years, qualifications in Personal Training and Group Fitness and a goal to complete a Masters Degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, I am privileged to be able to put my knowledge into action and offer my service and support to all the amazing members of our wonderful community and aid as many people as possible in adding value to their lives through realizing their health and fitness goals.
I’m absolutely loving your classes & seeing results just makes me want to strive to achieve more… so happy to have come this far not just with my weight but my energy levels, fitness, body confidence & learning when & what to eat…
Since I started training with Kirby Bree Fitness, I’ve lost 11kg & 26cm. I’m back into clothes I was in on my honeymoon (9 years & 3 kids ago!!)
