I was born in the Philippines, during the heydays of the magnificent Madonna and the late, great Prince. I qualify under the Senior Millennial age bracket.
I have been working since I was five years old, starting out as a radio talent. I spent my school years not only devoted to my studies but also as a competitive athlete, stage actor, student leader and amateur journalist. I eventually wrote my way into national and regional publications. After completing my degree in Business Administration, I served various government and private organizations. In my free time, I worked as a freelance writer, web developer and performing arts instructor.
Over the years, I trained in various disciplines of dance and martial arts. I am a certified Group Exercise Leader and have taught Aerobics, Aqua Fitness, Cardio Kickboxing, Kung-Fu, Mixed Martial Arts, Zumba, Bokwa, TRX Suspension, Piloxing, Pound and STRONG by Zumba. I am certified as an Advanced Level Instructor under the Les Mills system for the RPM (indoor cycling), BodyBalance/BodyFlow (yoga, pilates, tai chi fusion), BodyPump (total body workout with light weights), BodyCombat (martial arts-inspired cardio) and Tone (cardio, weights and core) programs.
My husband, Peter, and I moved to the Sultanate of Oman in October 2007. We have both lived and worked in the Middle East since. We both currently have careers in the Education sector. At present, we reside in Muscat, the Sultanate’s capital. It is a blessing that our jobs are based in the city and require minimal travel, so we get to spend a lot of time with our daughter despite having full-time jobs.
