We are so excited to have you apart of our team! Tell us a little about yourself?

I am originally from Adelaide and moved to Melbourne 10 years ago to study professional dance full time for two years. My Pilates passion lead me back to doing my training through the APMA and have been working in the industry for 6+ years now and I absolutely love my job.

What do you get up to in your downtime? Any favourite hobbies? 

Pre COVID I was a super social butterfly! My favourite thing was going out to dinner with friends and checking out all the amazing movement classes Melbourne has to offer. Since COVID, I've had so much more time for reading which has been amazing, walking my naughty French bulldog & spending more time with my partner. Can’t wait to travel again in the future. 

What does movement mean to you? How do you apply this to the way you teach?

Movement is EVERYTHING! We literally use movement throughout our entire day. It's my mission to educate people to move better and therefore have the best quality out of their capability! 

Tell us why you love MoveActive? 

I have crushed on MoveActive for years now! I obviously love the functionality and the awesome grips stop me from falling on my face when i'm trying to concentrate on my movement. The patterns and prints are EVERYTHING! I’m such a sucker for matchy-matchy and my socks must match my activewear. 

What will you bring to the MoveActive Ambassador team? 

I want to share my message of; smarter not harder movement and carrying our effective functionality from the Pilates Mat into our day. I want more people to know the power of Pilates!
