Life philosophy?

Live it wisely, you only get one shot at it!

How do you grab life?

Every morning I wake up and take a moment to say thank you!

What’s on your bucket list?

Hawaii Ironman.

What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?

Weekend with eleven of my besties from school in Toowoomba. Every two years, we catch up at Byron Bay for our reunion. We all fly in from all parts of the country, and it is priceless. I need a weekend to recover from it!

Any hidden talents?

Whip up the world’s healthiest banana bread in 10 minutes.

What would be a good theme song for your life?

Dancing Queen. You’ve got to live like a Dancing Queen.

Biggest defining moment in your life?

When I heard the late Stella Young, a great Australian and disability advocate tell me to stand up against a contentious issue I was having in the workplace regarding my ‘disability’. From that moment on, I felt another level of passion and determination rising. This was the catalyst for establishing my own Foundation, Sport Access Foundation. By providing grants, we help Australian children living with a disability access sport.

Your go to meal?

Green Bowl – covers all my nutrition needs (egg, avocado, kale, almonds, feta, lemon, quinoa).

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

Meditate. Silence is good.

What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?

I’m working on this one. A group of friends and I go hiking every year. I’ve almost got them all on board to do the big one, Larapintha Trail. It starts from Telegraph Point near Alice Springs and is 223km long.
