Kathleen “Cupcake” Somerville
Assistant RSB Coach New West
I’m thrilled to be part of Rock Steady Boxing New West! I started volunteering with Rock Steady Boxing New West in 2017 and am now a Certified RSB Assistant Coach for Robyn. I am passionate about coaching and love to motivate and support our boxers to maintain an active lifestyle in a fun and supportive environment. I am also a BCRPA Registered Fitness Leader, Weight Training and Group Fitness Instructor and a Yoga teacher. I have been practicing Yoga, Qi Gong and Kick-Boxing since 2001.
I am very passionate about working and volunteering in the community. I was born in New Westminster but raised just outside of Toronto. I moved back to B.C. in 1997. My family moved to the Sapperton neighbourhood in New Westin 2009 and we quickly fell in love with the city. I have volunteered with a number of non-profits in New West and served on boards with The New Westminster Environmental Partners, NewWest FilmFest, The New Westminster Community Gardening Society as well as city committees. My love for the environment and community has allowed me to work and volunteer with inspiring people. I am married with two children (21 and 14) and two cats (both 10). When I’m not in the gym I can be found gardening. I love the beach, dancing, and going out to eat at one of my many favourite vegan restaurants. My family collects board games, we own close to 100!
