I am a full time athlete, who works as a part time receptionist at Gold Coast Physiotherapy. I am also studying part time at Griffith University as an undergraduate in commerce, majoring in accounting.
I was selected to represent Australia at the London Olympics – and have won two gold medals in 50m breaststroke in the Delhi and Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
Being a student at A.B. Paterson College meant having support and understanding with training and sporting commitments, so that I could pursue my dream.
