For me, being active is my life. Getting out and about each day, exploring new places, going on adventures with friends is what its all about. You don’t have to be climbing mountains or jumping cliffs (two of my favourite activities) to be active… a walk to the park, taking the stairs instead of the elevator… that kind of thing works a treat. I have grown up in sport, moving abroad at 16 to compete full time, it taught me all the important life lessons including mental strength, time management, determination, hard work and to dream big. My family support me to the end. Most of my family live in Scotland so I try to get home to visit as often as possible. I will try every sport, my favourites include skiing, crossfit, mountain climbing, mountain biking, surfing, paddle boarding, golf and badminton. I work everyday with people who inspire me. Currently in the off season I am working at Crossfit Nultien, there are a great group of athletes there all striving to be better. The other coaches teach me a lot too. During the winter I compete against a unique group of women. The best in the World. Anyone who can push themselves to the limit in such an extreme sport inspires me greatly. Live music is a huge passion of mine, my brother got me into that at a young age. I’m a big adrenaline junkie. Anything that gets my heart racing is good for me. Also things I can do with friends or family… are my favourites.
