  • Description


    We are 2 young and outgoing friends from Australia looking to get the most out of our Canadian experience. We have each done extensive travel to many countries and share our love for the animals, the outdoors, cultural experiences, fitness and learning new skills. Jenny and I met through a working holiday at a Canadian ski resort (SilverStar, Vernon) earlier in the year where we were both doing our CASI Level 1 Snowboard Instructor course, and have been great friends ever since! We look forward to seeing more of what Canada has to offer, and also the wonderful hosts we meet along the way!

  • More details about your skills

    Experience/Skills - I have been a Personal Trainer/Coach for all ages (from 2.5y/o - 98y/o) for the last 8 years, working in clinics, hospitals, private gyms and owning my own business for the last 2. I have my Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise Sports Science & Exercise Physiology) from the University of Sydney and have used this degree by directing, managing and marketing a small training business with responsibility over a large variety of clientele, as well as responsibilities over budgeting, cash flow and sales. Recently, I have been a lift operator and a qualified snowboard instructor, and have experience teaching/instructing in the snow and manual handling (shovelling, ramp building, snow removal). Other previous job experience includes front desk and front of house (gym, golf/tennis Pro-shop attendant/cashier) and food and beverage experience (waitress).

    Experience/Skills - The last 9 years of my life has been spent nurturing and raising children in the childcare industry in between nursery and 12 years of age. In this time I have obtained my Cert 3 and Diploma in Children's Services, as well as other certificates. My next aspiration will to further my education in child protective studies. Within my time at Silverstar, I completed my CASI Level 1 Instructor Snowboard course in which I had the opportunities to utilise this new certificate on the slopes. With already having many years experience with children, this has been a highlight within my career. I've also worked as a sales consultant at a local snow/ski shop which also specialised in snow holidays and travel. There I was able to touch base on building relationships with clients and customers, strong communicating, inventory & stocking, and cash handling skills. My love for health and wellbeing is also very important to me which involves being heavily involved in gym and yoga 5-6 times a week as well as playing netball twice a week in a social league.

  • What else ...

    We both love the photography and the outdoors, and have spent many years camping, fishing, 4WDing, boating and mountain bike riding. We are experienced snowboarders and love big mountain riding as well as lapping the terrain park. Our main passion involve animals; the care, nurture and wellbeing of animals - from dogs, to horses and other farm animals. We both own dogs back home and love them to death!
