With an outlet for her to show singles how it’s done, this venture allowed Kirsch to show fans and followers alike that she knows what shes talking about, and she had the proof by the results of those who came on the show as singles and left as a couple. ‘Love Trap’ was so well received by audiences across Canada, that in February 2014, ABC Spark picked up the series, which they are currently airing.

Kirsch made Shinan Govani’s ‘Worthy 30’ list in the summer of 2012, listed as one of Toronto’s top bachelorettes and after becoming a fixture in Toronto’s party scene, Govani wrote a feature on her in October 2012 in his society column in the National Post, calling her GTA’s Carrie Bradshaw.
She has a Bachelor of Journalism from Ryerson University, where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in Psychology. Often sought after for her to-the-point advice, which Govani dubbed ‘Carrie Bradshaw meets Jerry Seinfeld,’ Kirsch offers relationship coaching sessions to singles and couples who want some direction in the dating world and is available to do sessions over Skype for those outside of Toronto.
Kirsch, 29, lives in a house with her long-term boyfriend, who she has spent every day with since they first met. Also in said house is their beloved Mastiff ‘Titus’ who is twice the size of Kirsch. When she isn’t practicing yoga, writing her heart out (literally) at a quint-cafe on Toronto’s west end, or out and about at the city’s hottest events with a champagne flute in hand, she can be found cuddled up on her couch reading her millionth book.
