Pursue your passion, failure can be a gift, listen to your spirit, respect your body, gratitude is essential.
I grew up living a rural lifestyle on a property in Northern NSW with hobbies and interests including athletics, cross country running and horse riding. I went on to study a BA of Urban & Regional Planning and have over 16 years’ industry experience specialising in statutory planning & development assessment within northern metropolitan Sydney. It was only in 2004 at the age of 27 that I discovered the sport of triathlon & found my passion for long course triathlon supported by the Ironman family and its broader community.
Whilst juggling two career interests, the efficient use of time and training with purpose was fundamental to my routine and success in the sport. Through consistent hard work and trust in the process, I reached my potential as an amateur triathlete and in 2009 qualified for a Professional Licence. An opportunity of a lifetime taking my sporting career to the next level amongst the world’s best on the international circuit.
In 2013, following a highly successful racing season, I made the decision to pursue my passion in triathlon as a full time career which has been one of the most empowering and life changing experiences made to date. This path has opened opportunities in many aspects of endurance sport including coaching in both triathlon & multisport. It has also enabled me to build active partnerships with various organisations in areas of sports performance, community coaching and the health & fitness industry as a whole.
Throughout my racing career, I’ve had the privilege of working with one of Australia’s best High Performance Coaches Grant Giles – Aeromaxteam, along side my ‘A-Team’ of sporting specialists based in Sydney who have been instrumental to my development & career highlights. My triathlon career would also not have been possible without the support of my fantastic team of sponsors, friends, family and husband Nigel.
