She spent 15 years working in finance and fund management, when her marathon and triathlon racing led her to see a sports dietitian. The sports dietitian (funnily, Sally from Apple to Zucchini!!) inspired her so much and she saw great changes in her racing and lifestyle she left finance and went back to university to study dietetics.
Nutrition has played a large part in her sporting career. She has raced several ironman triathlons, 15 marathons and several ultramarathons. She has placed top 10 in the national marathon titles, often placing top three in her age group and won the female event in an 80km ultramarathon in 2014 and is one day hoping to make it to South Africa and race Comrades.
She has also raced in New Zealand, Boston and across Australia so is equipped to help athletes who need to travel for events.
