I started training when I was 16 when my mum took me to the gym. I was always active at school sports but I wanted to do something different. The man who owned the gym showed me a body building magazine and that is where my passion began. That was back in the day of Rachel McLish and Cory Everson. I began training with a few top bodybuilders in Adelaide and with their help I competed twice in my 20's.

Then I changed direction and went into competitive aerobics. I loved the energy and performance of the sport. I competed a few years and then I got into judging of aerobic and school aerobic competitions.

INBA introduced the Ms Fitness Division and this was the best of both worlds for me. I got to the High Energy Performance with a Bikini Round and Formal Wear. We also had to make a speech on Fitness.

Eventually I worked my way back to the Figure section where after coming 2nd 4 years in a row at State Titles I finally came 1st. I came 3rd at Nationals and 5th at the Natural Olympia in Perth.

After competing for nearly 20 years and running Olympic Muscle and Fitness, I decided to change direction again. I asked Kim for an opportunity to judge and now I am Head Judge in South Australia. I have also been lucky to judge at Nationals the last 3 years. I am always happy to give feedback to competitors because I love to see the improvement each time they compete.
