What do you do outside of training? I am studying my masters of nutrition and dietetics. I currently work at the Department of Health in a policy taskforce. I also play ice hockey and do competitive cheerleading. When I’m not busy with uni and sport I love just hanging out with friends
What has been your greatest adventure so far? the greatest adventure of my life was when I was 18. I moved to Canada without my family or friends to go to uni and play ice hockey. I really didn’t know anyone or have a plan in place for where I was going to live or what I would do for work. While I was living there I met some of the most amazing people, had one of the best jobs I’ve ever had, and created so many great memories. Looking back on the experience it really taught me a lot and changed my life for the better. I stayed there for 2 years before moving back to Australia
Describe the top 3 priorities in your life? 1. Family - family will always be the most important priority in my life. 2. Friends - my friends are such a massive part of my life, they are always there when I need them. I had a pretty rough year in 2016 and my friends really got me through it. It showed me how important strong friendships are. 3. Sport - playing sport is what I live for, if I didn’t have sport I think I would be pretty miserable.
If money were no object where would you live? Definitely Hawaii! I was lucky enough to get to compete in the global cheer games in Hawaii earlier this year. It was one of the most fantastic experiences. The people are so friendly and all of the activities we did there were amazing. We went hiking, snorkelling and did lots of swimming. I can definitely see myself living there it’s beautiful!
What do you enjoy about Muay Thai? I enjoy everything about Muay Thai! I especially love the fitness, the discipline, the stress relief and the people I train with.
Describe the people you train with at Chopper? the people at Chopper are amazing. They are so friendly and helpful. I’ve been to other gyms where this is not the case. It’s so nice to train somewhere like Chopper where there are no egos and no judgement.
Do you want to fight? Yes, one day I would love to fight but I think I have a lot of work to do and a long way to go before I’m ready.
