Kathy is an ELM Group Fitness Instructor with a passion for outdoor fitness.  She has post secondary education in Leisure Services, Physical Education as well as Leadership and Tourism Management and brings many fantastic skills to the ELM Team. 

After many years as a keen participant with ELM, Kathy was delighted to join the ELM team as an instructor in 2012 and has been instructing our Fresh Air Fitness and Hiking Programs ever since. 


What does Kathy love about teaching for ELM?  "It’s being outdoors with the wonderful, diverse group of individuals who are committed to improve their physical health & well- being. Not only are they a lot of fun, they are also welcoming and supportive to new members to the class.  And nothing makes me happier than to see the progress in their physical endurance and strength. The social component that has evolved over the years is an added bonus. "

In addition to her work with ELM, Kathy keeps busy with her favourite hobbies: cycling, hiking, sailing, skiing, gardening, travel, cooking, and art.
