I was always very keen on sports when I was growing up and sustained a fair share of injuries in the process. On each occasion I visited my physio for these injuries and was fascinated that he could do a few tests and tell me exactly what the problem was and how to fix it. It was the combination of the problem solving and sports that excited me initially and the more I learnt about physiotherapy the more I understood how big a difference they can make to peoples day to day lives. The desire to help people came naturally to me with my dad being a psychologist and my mother a nurse and so, with all these things together, it became clear to me physiotherapy was the career path I would pursue.

It changes every year; as a sharpie sailor each year I head to a different state to compete in the national championships. It really doesn't matter where we go for the nationals because it's guaranteed to be the most enjoyable event of the year. Each nationals involves 7 races over 10 days with around 120-180 competitors from every state. What I love most about sailing sharpies is the combination of high level competition during the races and the comradery between the sailors afterwards. Whether it's Sydney, Hobart or a country town in Victoria, all the sailors will head out together after racing, socialise and have an awesome time.
