What do you want to be remembered for/what effect will you have on this world? 
The most influential person in my life has been my mother. She has taught me how to be kind, loving, accepting and patient. But most of all, she's taught me to always be positive and optimistic. I want to be remembered as someone who tried to make everyone feel happy. I like to think positively in every situation. I want to help make the world a happier, more loving and positive place.

What else do you do for fun (dance, write, travel, etc. Be specific!)? 
I love power yoga and weekends away in Muskoka. I love to travel and cannot wait to get back to London, England and also see Paris, Italy and Greece! I love going out for breakfast with my girlfriends, getting bacon and eggs, coffee and catching up on life.

If you could book a flight anywhere in the world, today, where would it be? 
London, England...I left my heart in the UK 3 years ago, I can't wait to go back one day.

What is your favourite piece of ReEvolve clothing you own? 
My bright, pink tank top that says 'this girl can clean and jerk'. I love everything bright and pink!

How does the ReEvolve mantra speak/appeal to you? 
The mantra talks about the quality of your life, eating good foods, taking care of your body, the intensity and passion for your work (whether your job or your workout). The mantra is honest and talks about the things that add passion and purpose and prosperity to your life. The richness of being healthy, taking care of yourself and loving yourself. My favorite part, is advocating setting goals. I'm a huge goal setter and set a new goals each month (sometimes...each week!) and believe in goal setting to help you move forward in life. Sometimes, you surprise yourself :)

What charity do we need to donate to? Why? 
There is an amazing charity called Cameron's Help, which helps provide support to teens with depression and mental illness. CrossFit Select has worked closely with them in the passed, in helping create more knowledge of teen mental illness and reaching out to help make a difference, speaking out to show teens they are not alone. It really is an amazing charity, and perhaps one to look into.

Do you partake in CrossFit Competitions? 
Yes, I love competition. I learn so much about myself and love the excitement and rush of working out next to other amazing and inspiring women!

What’s your Fran time? 
3:00 minutes on the dot!
