Voted as one of Halifax’s top personal trainers the last four years, Deb has made it her life mission to help as many people as possible live their healthiest and best life. Although she camped and hiked as a child, and was an avid collector of those coveted outdoor Girl Guide badges, her love of backpacking was ignited in her mid-40s.
