At the age of 5, I began calisthenics at Plympton Halifax as a very quiet child who loved performing. 15 years later, and I am still competing at that same club with the same passion for performing and calisthenics.
During these past 15 years, I have been lucky enough to have been coached by some wonderfully talented women, received many awards, and won several aggregates with my team mates. I was able to compete in Ballarat twice as a junior where my team won every item in 2008. I have also competed and placed in solo, duo, and graceful competitions which have allowed me to improve as a competitor. Over the years, I have been privileged enough to compete in older age groups, as well as my own. I am currently a part of the senior team and love coming to lesson each week!
In 2017, I completed my Cadet Course and began demonstrating for Miss Hayley’s sub-junior team. In 2018, I assisted in coaching the sub-junior 3 team, as well as the sparkles team, and I received my Level 1 Coaching Accreditation. This year, I am excited to be working alongside Miss Amelia to teach the sparkles and tinies teams, as well as assist Miss Casey with the Junior 2 team.
Outside of calisthenics, I am in my third year of studying paramedic science at university. I also work as a first aid officer and a rowing coach.
I am so grateful for the skills that calisthenics has provided me with and the amazing friendships I have made. I hope to share my love for the sport with each girl I coach and assist them in developing lifelong skills.
