After years of training for a wide of range of sports and concentrating on my further education to reach my goals as a Sports Scientist, I was recently struck down by MS! Life came to a halt stopping me from doing everything that I loved, and in turn challenging my mental health. Last year I set myself a goal to participate in Love Me Love You’s March with Me event, concentrating on everything I needed to do, so that I could achieve this goal. It gave me a greater understanding of my wellbeing plan. With a better understanding of how this works for me, I am very passionate about helping others understand their challenges, and how we as individuals can overcome all challenges.
Fuelled by my passion and commitment to the health and wellbeing of individuals I strive to assist and support people in maximising development, learning and performance. I have a demonstrated this passion through my years studying at La Trobe University where I developed my skills in Rehabilitation Counselling, mental health, behaviour change and wellbeing. I have a strong desire to not only contribute but to make a real difference in the lives of the community. I am a believer in the creation of an environment in which shared values and goals assist in contributing to increasing people’s self-esteem, optimism and inclusion.
