I have competed in Triathlons over all distances as well as running, ocean swims and numerous other events. Through consistent, focussed training I have worked my way up to achieve age group podiums in 70.3 and Ironman whilst working at a senior level in management for a large corporate.  I have always trained with the simple goals to be the best I can, and enjoy the sport and lifestyle.

I have been coaching since 2007, assisting on a number of Triathlon NSW development squad camps. I coach a small group of athletes both face to face and online from around Australia and enjoy working with athletes who are committed to achieving their best.

I’m a Professional Triathlete, who works as an HR Consultant, as well as balancing my passion for coaching and developing others. I took up Triathlon in 2005, and quickly became a competitive age group athlete winning 2 Australian titles and turning professional in 2007. As an elite athlete I have achieved a high level of success with over 25 Pro Podiums and an Australian title, whilst also balancing my corporate career.

I started coaching in my early years and have always loved to help others achieve their best.  I play a very active role in the triathlon community, with involvement at many camps and events.  I love to work closely with athletes of all ages and abilities and drive high performance and participation, particularly of females within the sport.
