I started Zen Do Ki karate when I was 4 years old. I continued until I was about 10, achieving junior black belt.
I picked karate up again when I was 15, trained a year or two and regraded as a senior black belt, first dan. As a teenager I played most sports; basketball, volleyball, indoor cricket, soccer, tennis, jazz ballet, softball.. but I stopped most things in favour of aerobics and gym in later high school.
I grew up in a country town called Echuca. I started teaching Les Mills classes at the YMCA in 2003. I started as a Personal Trainer in 2005.
In 2007 I moved to Melbourne to complete a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science at Deakin University, majoring in Physiology and Sports Nutrition. During this time and after I finished uni, I worked as a Personal Trainer at Fitness First.
Mid 2012 I backpacked around Europe, volunteered in the Maldives, and moved to London. I managed an LA Fitness in Piccadilly Circus for a while, but the money was impossible, so I decided to change industry and work in sales/ marketing.
I was sponsored in my role, and lived in East London for four amazing years.
In 2015 I moved to Sydney. I managed the upgrade of the Health Club at Five Dock Leisure Centre.
In 2017 I started at Vault Boxing, working as a boxing and strength coach.
