Long Live the Hard-Core Adventuress

Annette’s parents knew she would be a hard-core adventuress at an early age, when at barely 2-years-old, she waddled over to the pool where her older sister was receiving swim lessons and jumped in! She’s always been a little crazy that way. Growing up in the tiny country of Belize provided plenty of opportunities to fuel her adventurous spirit. Always barefoot, you could find her shimmying up coconut trees, walking on stilts or swimming in the Caribbean Sea.

Annette swam competitively in high school and then raced as a triathlete during her college years. In her late twenties she became an endurance athlete and since then has competed in numerous races—several marathons, fifty milers, and the Cascade Crest Classic 100-mile ultra-run, 1-3 mile ocean and lake swims, several bike races including the Death Ride and a 3-day, 280-mile mountain bike race across Costa Rica (coast-to-coast), and several triathlons including Ironman Canada (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run).

Helping Others Age Less and Live More

Shortly after running the Cascade Crest Classic 100-mile ultra-run, Annette experienced severe hormonal imbalances that caused her to go through early menopause. This was a real turning point for her. It was the first time in her life that she ever thought about aging. Annette realized just because she’s aging, doesn’t mean she has to grow old. She decided—right then and there—to be ageless. To be fit & strong, and lead an energetic life filled with passion and purpose. So, after 20 years of being a private personal trainer and nutritionist, she changed her pace and became a lifestyle and longevity coach. Annette is now on a mission to help others age less and live more!
