You could say I came to CrossFit late in life, being much closer to 40 than 30 when I began, but age hasn’t stopped me personally finding out the physical and mental benefits of this sport. It helped me find a balance between being a mum, a mathematics teacher, and a researcher at the same time as becoming healthier. With this perspective, and with over 20 years experience as a sports instructor and teacher, I want to help you. Let’s work together on improving your technique and reaching your goals, all within a healthy, balanced lifestyle.


I really enjoy being part of the CrossFit YouAct community. If I’m not coaching or participating in a class, you’ll probably find me in the box chatting with others or organising throwdowns (CrossFit competitions). And as an Irish woman, although I have lived in Eindhoven for over 15 years, I still need my cup of Irish tea in the morning!
