Between modeling and dancing, you also study law at QUT. What inspired you to study this?

Whilst a career in modeling and dancing is my dream, I have always been inspired to attain an university degree to ensure my options are invariably open. I have had a passion for law as it allows me to utilise my academic skills and will provide me with a career for life.

What area of the law are you interested in? How long do you have left in your degree?

I would love a career in entertainment or sports law and I will be graduating next year.

Tell us how you got involved in cheering for the Brisbane Broncos?

Basically I heard about the auditions on the radio and thought that would be a pretty amazing opportunity so I went along and luckily enough got selected out of hundreds of girls and received a contract and have had my contract renewed every year since!

You seem to have a pretty hectic schedule! How do you balance work and play?

Yes I do! I think it’s all about organisation and prioritising what’s important right now and what is important for my future.

What is your favourite thing to do when you find some down time?

My downtime is usually spent studying, although I do love a night out with my girlfriends or heading to the coast to relax at the beach.

What's your favourite memory during your time with the Broncos?

Definitely my first game cheerleading, running out to the phenomenal atmosphere of 40,000 people at Suncorp Stadium, its indescribable and that feeling has kept me coming back season after season!

Tell us a fun fact about you not many people would know?

I was in Camp a U.S TV series filmed late last year in New South Wales, it was an amazing experience being fortunate enough to work with some talented people!

We heard you are headed to LA in November, are you heading there on holiday or for a new work-related venture?

I am heading there over summer break with my best friend to pursue modeling and dancing opportunities. We will be auditioning for all the major U.S cheersquads and have aspirations of gaining contracts with the Dallas Cowboys or LA Lakers Cheersquad’s as well as meeting with some of the big modelling agencies.

You’ve been described as a health and fitness enthusiast. What do you do to maintain good health?

For me it’s all about balance, having fun with my workouts and focusing on filling my body with nutrients but not depriving myself. It’s important to be happy and enjoy yourself - everything in moderation.

Do you plan on retiring from the Broncos to pursue law? Or will you try to do both?

When I graduate to become a lawyer I will have to retire as it will be time to get serious, but until then I plan to keep at it and keep enjoying what I am doing.
