Australian Swimmer

I swim at Brisbane Grammar Swim Club where I've been coached by David Lush since I was 11. I graduated from Brisbane Girls Grammar School in 2017. I begin my Biomedical Science degree at Bond University in May 2018, having been chosen as the recipient of the Georgina Hope Rinehart Swimming Excellence Scholarship. I live at home with my family and our two burmese cats.

 

I was a member of the Australian Junior Swim Team since 2014. As a Junior Dolphin I swam at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Hawaii in both 2014 and 2016, and also the World Junior Championships in Singapore 2015 where I broke several world records. 

In November 2016 I was selected onto the Senior Dolphins team for the first time and swam at the World Short Course Championships in Windsor Canada in December 2016. Following a focussed year of study in 2017, I have qualified for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games team for the 50m Backstroke.
