Upon completing the national qualification in Exercise, Health and Personal Training with the National Training Centre, Dearbhla successfully progressed her expertise at Platinum Pilates, where she is now happily teaching.
With a strong dance background, Dearbhla spent many years performing as a lead soloist with the Monica Loughman Ballet Company. She danced the role of Clara in the Nutcracker at Dublin’s Convention Centre in 2014. Dearbhla also coached the UCD Dance Society in ballet technique and flexibility training, during her time there as a student.
In 2015, Dearbhla began the big change to a vegan diet and hasn’t looked back since. She was awarded the QQI Certificate in Nutrition in 2016 and has since then used that knowledge to embrace the vegan diet and improve her health and energy levels. She believes that her vegan diet plays a huge role in helping her succeed at her high-energy physical job.
