How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like most about living here? This is my eighth year in Forbes after I moved here from Newcastle in 2011. I love being involved in the community and the friendships and connections I have made.
Where do you work or what do you currently do? I work at Red Bend Catholic College as a visual arts and dance teacher. I also started my own business last year, Elevate Dance Studio.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? The lake is my favourite place in Forbes, so beautiful and peaceful. I love going for walks with friends, enjoying the yummy Sweet Three waffles or riding my bike around.
What makes you proud? I’m so proud of all the students I teach. I’m also proud of my business. It has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to have my own dance studio and I’m finally making it happen.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose and why? Probably a dolphin because I’m from the beach and might have been a mermaid in a previous life.
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? Centre Stage! I love it because of the determination and passion the dancers in the movie have. Truly inspiring!
Tell us about your best holiday. I went to Europe in 2015 to study at the Royal Academy of Dance. That was such an amazing experience. I was in so much awe to be there! On that trip I spent the days studying and dancing and then cramming in as many tourist adventures as I could!
