Question Answer
Tell us about your sporting background growing up and how did you first get into triathlon? I was a competitive swimmer for 16 years and loved to ride and compete in fun runs. I also compete in surf lifesaving.

When I finished school I decided to ditch the mountain bike and get a racer so I could start triathlons. I had 2012-2013 off to start a family and have come back to have a crack at the bigger events.
Your favourite tri discipline? Swimming when it comes to a race and I enjoy open water swims (I hate training in a pool). This season I have really enjoyed running and I seem to run better off the bike then just on a straight out run
Goal race for the 2014/15 season? My goal race this season is Challenge Melbourne and just to complete it, although I haven’t had the best preparation with a Fiji holiday and coming back with tonsillitis which knocked me flat for two weeks. At least I feel well rested for it!
Favourite holiday destination and why? Fiji and its amazing tropical islands, I have been there a couple of times now and it’s great for young kids too
If you could have a super power for a day (e.g. flying, walk through walls etc.) what would it be? I think I would have to say the ability to do things with my mind… Think about something that has to be done, point and it’s done!
In a snapshot of a few sentences what else keeps you busy outside of triathlon? A very active 2.5 year old keeps me busy outside of triathlons as well as being a Primary P.E teacher
What do you love about being a member of the NunaTriClub? I love being a member of NTC because everyone is so positive, supportive and encouraging no matter what distances you do
