About me

I grew up in Rocky where I was heavily involved in sports throughout my whole life, starting in gymnastics at the age of 4. I then moved into tennis, softball, touch football, track and field, and my first love, which was netball. I started my gym journey when I was 15 when I fell in love with lifting weights. After finishing high school, I represented North Queensland in under 18s, under 19 and under 23s mixed indoor netball before retiring at 19. In my first year out of school, I got my first job in a women’s only gym where I moved into CrossFit and competed locally for four years. Injury led me to seek physiotherapy at Vector in 2020 where I then transitioned to the coaching space to rehabilitate and return to sport, which ultimately led to me taking up a coaching role at Vector in 2021. As an adult, I continue to train both weightlifting and track and field for fun to complement my love of coaching.
I started undergraduate studies in 2017, pursuing a Bachelor of Physiotherapy before changing course to study Exercise and Sports Sciences at CQU in 2021. Since then, my own experiences as an athlete and struggles with nutrition led me to complete my Certificate in Applied Sports Nutrition in 2022 to register as a Sports Nutritionist. I started my Masters in Nutrition in 2023 with the intention of transitioning and graduating as a Dietitian in the future.
