  • How did you get into paddling? I started out in Surf Life Saving and through the National Talent ID program took up Kayaking when I was 16. I originally started to help my ski paddling but quickly fell in love with the sport.
  • What has been your biggest accomplishment in the sport so far? Being a finalist in the K2 500 at the 2016 Olympic Games and becoming the K1 1000 World Champion in 2017.
  • What keeps you busy outside of Kayaking?What is your current Occupation and/or University degree?   I have a Bachelor of Communication and have almost completed a Master of Business Administration. I work for myself as a digital marketing consultant with small businesses which keeps me super busy.
  • Who is the greatest Influence on your career? Definitely all of my training partners. Day in and day out the girls challenge me on the water and make me a better paddler and person. There’s no way I could do it without them.
  • How would your best friend describe you? Tall and loud.
  • Do you have any superstitions before a race? I always rcae with something pink on me. Whether it’s my boat, my hair tie, nail polish or my crop top, there’s always something pink!
  • What is your favourite course to paddle on? Szeged, Hungary. Whilst it’s not the prettiest lake in the world, the atmosphere when racing there is electric.
  • Previous National Teams: Junior (2009), U23 (2013-2015), Senior (2010-2011, 2013-current), Olympic (2016).
