What’s your warm up song?

I don't have a warm up song because I find it too distracting but maybe cool down song when I'm driving home so I can day dream. Anyone from Missy Elliot, Lauren Hill or Led Zeppelin.

Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry? 

Pantry. I've never really met anyone who keeps it in the fridge. I think it says keep at room temperature or cool place on the back not 'keep refrigerated' ?

Favourite other sport?

I love volleyball! I used to play for the state team when I was in high school and absolutely loved it.

To play me in a movie of my life I’d want …

Penelope Cruz. She looks absolutely nothing like me but I love her as an actress and her accent just melts me!

What do you hope to see from Zela?

I hope Zela keep up their amazing work in promoting female athletes and that they take on the government to put some new legislation in place for more female sports to be shown on tv.

Who was your role model growing up?

My mum. I've always known she is very special, but now I'm older and reaching time for motherhood myself, I just find her even more incredible. She works two jobs as a disability support worker- at a high school for children with disabilities and as part of our council as a home respite worker. Plus she looks after us, cooking, cleaning, nurturing. She's my superwoman.
