About Us

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.



I graduated from my engineering degree at the end of 2019; straight into two years of covid lockdowns and working from home. Like many others, I found this experience quite isolating and realised that I am more fulfilled when working directly with people, rather than remotely.

I have always had a passion for health and fitness as I love the benefits that exercise can provide for my mood and confidence, so I decided to undertake further study to become a group fitness coach and personal trainer to help others fall in love with exercise too.

My ethos around fitness is all about feeling great mentally and physically; to feel like your best self. I am inspired to help other women reach their fitness goals and live healthy, balanced lifestyles, and I am so grateful that I get the opportunity to do this within the Kirby Bree Fitness community.

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.
