I became involved in triathlon when I took part in the WIT 2020 course. It was the WIT course that I found an amazing group of friends and kept involved in the sport. My favourite thing about triathlon is the community and sending it on the bike. I did the foundation coaching course so that I could help the WIT courses and hope to one day coach one on one athletes.
I have recently got my foundation coaching course to be able to help out my local club, North Coast. I have been with this club since I was about 12, where I did my first kids triathlon. I'm currently still doing triathlons and am one of WA’s top under 23 athletes. I hope to be able to share my knowledge and experience in the sport to help others be able to have the confidence to participate in a triathlon.

I’m a mum of 3 and as my kids had grown up, I had more time in my hands and dove into triathlon.
I joined WIT in Feb 2021 as I missed out on the intake in 2020 but was super keen to try this crazy sport. From the first introduction night I was hooked.
I decided to do the coaching course to try and give back something to the sport and help retain more women in the club. The best part about this sport is the friendship I have made and the community I have found.
