Where did you grow up?
I lived in Newcastle until I was 4 and then Mum and Dad decided to relocate our family to Stroud (where my dad is originally from). This rural change meant I was lucky enough to grow up on an 18 acre hobby farm where I was able to roam the paddocks, ride motorbikes and have 2 horses, Crystal and Princess (her name suited her to a T) cows and 3 border collies and a kelpie. These days I consider myself a bit of a gypsy as I spilt my time between Stroud, Newcastle, and Maitland, always having an overnight bag packed with me - keeps life interesting!
What have you studied?
Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science, Cert III and IV in Fitness and this year I have gone back to university to study a Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Diagnostic Radiography), call me crazy..
Passion in fitness / sport / wellbeing?
Throughout my childhood and teenage years, I was heavily involved in sports such as dancing, swimming, little athletics and netball at both a social and representative level. However, during my Exercise and Sport Science degree my passion for playing sport influenced me to help assist sporting teams. I volunteered for 2 years as a sports trainer for local rugby league team and was given the opportunity to do placement with the Newcastle Knights and help with their pre-season training.
Other hobbies / passions?
Camping, pilates, binging on Netflix when I should be studying and exploring new places and cultures – I have the travel bug bad!
