Other cool facts about Isabelle:
Izzy credits her volunteer military background for her discipline and her hard-working mother for her tenacity. After learning to ski in her mid-20’s she then trained to become a ski instructor. It was while she was a ski instructor that Izzy noticed a phenomenal correlation between upgrading mindset and increased confidence. This initiated ten years of education, training, research and testing focusing on the brain’s ability to overcome confidence obstacles. Specifically she was interested in the role confidence played in overall mental performance and what would be the most impactful and direct means of seeing great results. Hence, Brain Train International was born.

Born in South Wales, she has lived in Andorra (the sixth smallest European nation bordering Spain and France), the east coast United States, Breckenridge Colorado, and Sun Peaks, British Columbia.

At age 16 she was the youngest person to take part in the Royal Geographic Society expedition to the Arctic Circle to survey the land by foot. This was some serious camping.
