I am currently in my first year of full-time study at the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle. I am completing my Bachelor of Education: Primary. I came to Notre Dame, after graduating from Sacred Heart College, Sorrento in 2012.

Over the past 18 years, I have lived in three different states. I lived in Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia. Though I do not remember much of Victoria and New South Wales when I was living there as I was only young, I am still in contact with people I met there.

Outside of study and my part time jobs, I spend most of my time down at the beach especially Trigg beach. Since the age of ten I have been apart of Surf life Saving where I have competed in state titles, completed many awards such as Bronze Medallion, Advanced Resuscitation Certificate and my IRB crew certificate. These awards have allowed me to be a more qualified volunteer lifesaver on the beach.

Career Goals

  • Being able to teach the kids to the best of my ability
  • Being there for the kids when they need someone to talk to
  • Providing a safe classroom environment for every child in my classroom
