One of your best memories?
I think my best memories growing up are those of everyday things; having dinners together, playing games at the park, body surfing at the beach, spending time with family. As a parent these are the things I focus on, making those connections regularly, always with an element of fun.
Favourite sporting team, musician/band or artist?
I love listening to Kate Miller-Heidke and watching her perform. I am always blown away by her amazing vocal range. I have seen her perform in places from shipping containers and festivals to The Opera House and locally at The Civic Theatre.
Favourite TV show/Movie?
I’m a sucker for a sporting movie and could watch A League Of Their Own without ever getting sick of it.
Best meal you’ve ever had?
I can’t go past a great lasagne. My Mum’s is definitely better than your Mum’s.
Best advice you have received:
“Nothing is permanent” Knowing this has always given me permission to have fun celebrating the good things and knowledge that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel during tough times.
Why is youth mental health important to you?
The adolescent years can be littered with challenges and I have seen first hand the increase in young people experiencing mental ill health. I am passionate about empowering young people and supporting them to discover their tools that will help them manage difficult times not just through their school years but beyond.
