Do you have a favourite quote?
“Follow the process” is just a simple saying that I love. It reminds me to follow a plan with patience and love the process just as much as the outcome.
What's one thing that would surprise us to find out about you?
That I wanted to start a sport when I was 5 and had the choice of netball or basketball. When I found out that you had to wear skirts in netball I immediately chose basketball. I owe my love of basketball to my 5-year-old hatred of any ‘girly clothes’.
Have you always been sporty?
Yes, ever since I was born. Apparently Mum had to have some sort of a ball ready for me in any situation to play with. Other kids slept with teddies, I cuddled my basketball/footy at night.
Who or what motivates you?
Progression motivates me, I love seeing how far I can push my mind and body
What is your favourite exercise or workout?
Squats, because it’s such a versatile compound exercise that you can make as challenging, or as easy as you like.
What sort of music do you like to workout to and why?
It depends on the day, but most of the time I’ll just chuck on the top 100 because usually that has upbeat songs
What do you love about your chosen sport?
I love the team environment about basketball both on and off the court. We have always been taught that you can have the most skilled individual athletes but if they can’t work together, you won’t be a successful team.
What do you enjoy about training at Mana?
I love learning that comes out of Mana. From nutrition/sleep to ways in which to optimise athletic performance. I also enjoy being in such a balanced environment where you can have a chat to everyone but also be pushed in training sessions.
