Kristie was born and raised in Prince Edward with five crazy/fun siblings and two supportive and loving parents. She realized early on that her sense of adventure was strong and headed off the gentle Island to earn a degree in Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick and then made the decision to travel as west as possible- first to Banff, then Kelowna- and back again. Along the way she developed a passion to help people live life to the fullest through a healthy lifestyle, while maintaining balance in her own life! She currently lives in Wellington West Village with her husband, Dan and their French bulldog, Ponzu. She spends her free time playing competitive soccer and volleyball, running, biking, and enjoying the outdoors. Kristie works full time in a medical centre educating individuals (primarily) with diabetes and hypertension on physical activity and diet. She has been working in the fitness industry for about 9 years and has never looked back. She is a CSEP-Certified Personal Trainer, Kettlebell Instructor, Yoga instructor, and barre instructor. The mantra she lives by is ‘Move. Smile. And when life gets tough… Move more. Smile more.
