I have been involved within the sport of triathlon for 11 years now, starting out as a young 20-year-old I spent my early years within the sport training at the University of Queensland whilst studying a degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Whilst completing my Honours project at UQ which involved working with Elite cyclists I began dabbling in coaching within the University’s triathlon and swim club. It became very clear to me very quickly that this was a role that I was made for, and I loved nothing more than spending time with likeminded, driven and motivated athletes who all came with different goals and life experiences.
I began to show some quality results within the sport in my early 20’s and from there was fortunate enough to have spent 5 years traveling the world and racing as a high-end age grouper on the International Triathlon Union World Championship series, placing as high as 6th in Beijing in 2011. It was these years and time in the sport that reaffirmed for me my love of coaching and triathlon and also led me to some incredible and lifelong friends, which I will be forever grateful for (one of them I ended up marrying😊).
In 2015 my husband Nick and I welcomed our first child Cooper and it was during my time off from full time Cardiac Science work that I was fortunate enough to be provided with the opportunity to begin working with T:Zero Multisport and continuing to pursue my passion of triathlon coaching within an online environment. Three and a half years later, I am now a full time Head Coach with T:Zero Multisport and have been so grateful to have learnt and grown over this time as a coach, an athlete and a person.
My passion for high level racing and training has continued over the years and I have reached some incredible high points in my athletic endeavours thus far over the Olympic and 70.3 distance and have also endured some athletic low points along the way, all of which I feel have contributed to me being able to help and guide driven and motivated athletes who are continually striving to be the very best they can be. Combining my scientific knowledge which I gained through 5 years of study as well as my personal experiences and learnings through the sport, I have been fortunate enough to work with and coach athletes from all around Australia, all of whom have achieved their personal goals, whilst learning, growing and developing a high performance mindset along the way.
I pride myself on delivering on time, well planned and periodized training plans which allow the athlete to maximise their athletic potential whilst continuing to maintain a life balance and most importantly enjoying the journey along the way (the high’s and the low’s). If you are driven, focused on the process and strive to reach high performance milestones within the sport of triathlon then I would love the opportunity to work with you. From Ironman debut performances through to World Championship Qualification performances, I am constantly motivated by my athletes and nothing is more pleasing or rewarding than seeing the goals of an individual (which at one point in time may have seemed a dream) become reality and working with enthusiastic athletes who have the time to dedicate to becoming the best that he/she can be in their desired distance.
