Carrie is an elementary school teacher who lives in Toronto, Canada. She got hit with the fitness bug around 2006 where she decided to take control over her health and start on her transformational journey, shedding over 50 pounds. She started competing in 2007 as a fitness model and figure athlete proving that she has a great passion and tenacity for this sport all while loving the challenge and mental strength that goes along with it.
Carrie hopes she can inspire others to believe that they can do anything if they put in the time and work, as well as to never doubt you’re incapable of achieving your dreams and goals. Carrie completed her thesis on the growing childhood obesity epidemic and it is something she holds close to her heart. In the future, she would like to offer free nutrition and training information camps for parents, children and adolescents who struggle with or are overweight.
Carrie's philosophy in life centers around this quote. "The distance between your dreams and reality is called action." She is very happy to be a part of the team of Fitmark ambassadors.
