I am a full-time competitive surfer from Alexandra Headland, and a student at the University of the Sunshine Coast, studying a Bachelor of Business (Marketing)/Bachelor of Biomedical Science. I started surfing at the age offive, and now, at 22 years, I am competing on the World Surf League Qualifying Series with goals to qualify for the World Circuit Tour and Australian Olympic team. I also strive to become a role model for young men and women, give back the community that has supported me, and find opportunities to provide help and support where it is needed most (charity).

My days at home consist of surf training, strength and conditioning at the Ocean Performance Centre, university studies, and various other forms of training that will aid me to constantly improve as an athlete. While on the road competing, I enjoy maintaining an early morning surf routine and active lifestyle, practising yoga, staying up to date with uni assessment and experiencing the amazing places that surfing takes me. Other hobbies include enjoy reading, golf, puzzles and snowboarding.

I first met Stacey about eight years ago during an early morning surf session. Through Maroochy Surf School, the Ocean Performance Centre and North Shore Boardriders Club, Stacey and I have become extremely close over the years. Bonding through a shared passion for the ocean and having a laugh, Stacey has now been sponsoring me with beauty therapy for approximately three years and I could not be more grateful. Not only has Stacey been an amazing sponsor, but she has also acted as a role model to me, advocating true beauty inside and out!
