Why did you begin your sport?

I have always been competitive with everything I do. I loved running races when I was little so naturally Little Athletics was perfect for me. I loved athletics the very first time I tried it. I always looked forward to Friday nights when it was on and hated when it got washed out. I tried Race Walking for the first time in the U'10s age group and instantly loved how different and unique it was. There was no turning back after that, I knew that was the event that I wanted to focus on.

Do you have any pre-competition routines or rituals?

I just try and be as normal as possible. I love playing with my son Lennon before my races. He keeps me calm and reminds me that there is more to to life than sport.

What is your most memorable sporting achievement?

I'm still working on that one!

Who is your hero / idol, and why? Have you ever met them?

Lots of different people inspire me for different reasons.

Who has been the most influential person or people in your career and why?

I have different influences at different times throughout my career. But the one person that stands out is my husband. Words cant express how much he does for myself and our family just so I can still compete. I don't think i will ever be able to repay his efforts.

Do you have any hobbies away from your sport?

I love family time totally away from the sport. I love the times when I am able to completely switch off to spend quality time with the people that matter in my life.

What is your sporting ambition?

To be able to retire satisfied with my results.
