Our Dedicated and Focused Team Members
As always, we look forward to a new season of the Total Makeover Challenge as we get to witness the incredible transformations of both body and mind. And we never stop being amazed at the remarkable resilience and strength displayed by our challengers as this program is not for faint of heart. It takes courage to change, put yourself out there and stay focused through the many challenges presented. But for each of these women that go through the challenge they become STRONGER and more POWERFUL with the belief in themselves that they can CONQUER any-thing life throws at them as THEY ARE WOMEN WARRIORS!
This is why we, The Total Makeover Team, love what we do!!!
Founder, Executive Team
I am a mother of 2 amazing kids (now young adults) and married to my university sweetheart and business partner in a local engineering company. I obtained my degree in Psychology at UBC right out of high school, as I have always loved working with people. However I also had an interest to start my own business and a passion for fitness and health. So I trained to be a fitness instructor and became certified in Nutrition. By combining these interests and passions, I opened a Ladies Health and Fitness facility where I was able to help women lose weight and increase fitness levels through mini competitive programs. To provide continued success in one’s fitness and health, I knew a key component was also developing the inner self. Thus the evolvement from fitness and weight loss challenges to the TOTAL MAKEOVER CHALLENGE. TOTAL being the whole person, working and developing on strengthening and empowering not just one’s outside physical self but also working on the emotional well-being of the inner self. Today I am thrilled to have seen many seasons of incredible transformations, both on the inside and the outside and look forward to expanding the TOTAL MAKEOVER CHALLENGE into more cities and changing many more lives.
