The opportunity to change minds and save lives.

How two people can have the same level of injury yet deal with total differences.

My motorbike crash story and Symon Still reaching out to me to come on board. 


  1. 8. What are your hobbies/what do you get up to outside of work?

Lots of camping, 4wd bush and beach runs, dying my hair all colours of the rainbow and just being “lost” in nature. 


  1. 9. What is your favourite thing about working for PBF/to reduce the impact and incidence

of spinal cord injury? 

Engaging with the youth and watching their expressions as you share what being in hospital is really like.

Connecting Community for Kids – Family Mentor 

City of Rockingham – Community Development Officer, Youth Services Secretary and Business Administration traineeship 


  1. 11. Why did you start working with PBF?

Because I don’t want other young people to go through what I went through at such a fragile age in life. My reality is that I lost a massive chunk of my life, that I will never gain back, and it is difficult to live with that.  


  1. 12. Why do you think people should become members of PBF Australia?

Because you never know what life may throw at you.  


  1. 13. Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:

How much I disliked public speaking and the simple thought of it would make me cringe.  

Now I absolutely love it and honestly could not imagine myself not doing it.  

And that I can talk about anything!
