My career in sport and the experiences that have come my way have shaped me into who I am today. I’ve conquered, I’ve under-performed, I’ve progressed, I’ve fallen behind, I’ve felt fear, I’ve felt invincible, I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve felt pain, I’ve felt perfect, I’ve won, I’ve lost, I fought hard, I’ve risked, I’ve been overwhelmed, I’ve worked HARD…but most importantly, I’ve learnt and continue to learn a hell of a lot about myself and the process of achieving success. I love connecting with people of all ages and sharing what I know through guest speaking. I want to inspire you to be the best you can be. To find your vision, go after it and achieve it.
