How do you stay motivated and push yourself in training?

Coming from America where we do not have surf clubs or squads to train with, I am really grateful to be training with so many talented athletes at Burleigh. Just seeing everyone around me pushing themselves motivates me to give it my all!

Many athletes have pre-game rituals that help them get into the zone. What are some of your personal pre-game rituals or routines that you believe help you get in the zone before hitting the beach or pool?

I like to have my swim bag, lunch, and any gear all packed the night before so I don't have to stress about anything the morning of a comp! Then day of the comp it's music and a good warm up and chatting with teammates and my coach about conditions and goals!

Reflecting on your career so far, what would you consider as the most memorable or defining moment?

A major defining moment for me in this sport was my decision to move to Australia and train with Kingy and the Burleigh crew!

I have learned so much and am so grateful for the lifelong friends I have made.

Are there any specific achievements or milestones that you are particularly proud of and that you feel have significantly impacted your journey as an athlete?

A significant achievement for me was winning the board race at USA Nationals two years in a row in 2022 and 2023.

Beyond your athletic pursuits, do you have any hobbies or passions that might surprise people?

I love baking and surfing! I also love to play water polo-- I started when I was 11 and played D1 in college in America!

How do you balance your intense training and competition schedule with personal interests outside of your sport?

I am very lucky to have most of my closest friends right next to me at training and competitions! I also find that baking and cooking are the best form of relaxation/recharging for myself during a busy week!
