SO, WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM?
I’m originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO MOVE TO CAYMAN?
Have you been to Winnipeg in the winter?! It is bitter cold and I love the sunshine!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE HOBBIES ON ISLAND?
Working out is something that is very important to me and by far the hobby I am most passionate about. It is a form of meditation where I am only focused on the workout, whether it be a run, lifting weights, or beach walks!
Baking is also a fun hobby that I have enjoyed for as long as I can remember! I am an accountant by trade and work as a compliance manager in Hedge Funds, so my daily life is ensuring everyone is following laws and regulations and that leaves very little room for creativity and experimenting. Baking allows me to use my imagination and make something beautiful and that people will enjoy! Being able to give someone something sweet treat provides me with great joy!!
SO WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO WORK OUT?
I love a mixture of the gym and the beach. I used to spend hours on the treadmill back in Winnipeg but when you have one of the world’s greatest beaches at your front door, that is where I want to run or take a long beach walk! I have been a member at World Gym since my first day on island, 12 years ago, and it is my second home. I have met a lot of great people there and enjoy nothing more than a good lifting session at World Gym!
AND WHAT ABOUT A SWEET TREAT?
Chocolate chip cookies, who doesn’t love these!
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON ISLAND TO GO ON A DINNER DATE?
We are so lucky in Cayman to have so many options of amazing restaurants! I would have to say Morgan’s for the food, the wine, the view and the atmosphere!
BEST BEACH IN CAYMAN?
Hard to choose, but I would have to say Governors Beach.
BEST PLACE TO GO FOR BREAKFAST?
Brussels Sprouts! The Coconut Milk Chia Seed Pudding is unreal and the breakfast hot buffet is delicious! Cutest little spot where you can dine in or grab and go if you’re in a hurry!
TELL US ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO SOMEONE LOOKING TO MOVE HERE.
Don’t think about, just do it! But honestly, the one piece of advice I would give is to appreciate the beauty of this island; both the people and the place. Talk to locals who grew up here and they will tell you where the hidden gems are! I am 12 years in, and still have so much to discover!
