Question Answer
Tell us about your sporting background and how you first got into triathlons I've always played heaps of sport; especially hockey and netball and very active; working in gyms, personal training and group fitness instructing. I've always wanted to do a triathlon, and made it a goal!
Your favourite TRI discipline? I like them all! All equally as challenging for me! I don't think I'm better than one over the other! But I do love getting on the bike!
Goal race for the 2016/17 season? Challenge Melbourne in April.
Favourite holiday destination and why Norfolk Island - my island home. This is where my family live and where I'm from. I can speak the Norfolk language and always love getting back to my roots. Love getting out in the ocean and going fishing and rock fishing with my cousins! The best! I heard they are going to have a triathlon there soon! Let's do it!
If you could have a super power for a day what would it be? Ironically, I am petrified of birds - but I would love to fly!
In a snapshot of a few sentences, what else keeps you busy outside of triathlons? I'm a teacher! My job keeps me crazy busy! But I'm looking to learn mandarin this year and play the guitar!
What do you love about being a member of NunaTriClub? The strong feel of being apart of a community. That we are family, being supportive and connected by our passion for the sport - and more so, life! Living every day fully and wholly. Chasing dreams, ticking bucket lists - together.
