1. I turn 21 this month in may, and this past season has been my first year as a senior. I found the jump hard, but I am looking forward to many more years of training and racing! 

Swimming

2. I'm studying at La trobe in Bundoora part time. I study Bachelor of Business (sport management) and I love it. It gives me such a mental break from skiing and training. But more importantly I love the course and I can see my self staying in the career later on.

Swimming

3. I have eight horses and I love riding when I'm at home on my parents farm. I used to ride competitively but of course one had to go and skiing took its place. But I still love horse riding in the off season. I used to do Horse showing and a little bit of eventing. 

Swimming


4. I spend around 3-5 months in a solid block over in America or Europe. I've spent most of my time in Sun Valley, Idaho! I just love the skiing and people there. It makes for good training over a long period! 

Swimming

5. Along with 8 horses, I also have a kelpie and a orange fluffy cat. Which I both adore! I love coming back to Australia after a long season in Europe of America and seeing their happy faces! 

Swimming

6. I also love the ocean, I love surfing I used to do it more as a kid but now my skills are a little rusty, but I try and get to the beach as much as possible when I'm home!
