Biography

I’m a mental health Occupational Therapist by training, with an immense love for the ocean. I’ve been a keen surfer of 20+ years, along with an advocate for the freedom and healing abilities of nature and the outdoors. As the CEO of WOW, a proud Surf Therapist, a keynote speaker, a NSW finalist for Young Australian of the Year, a university lecturer, and a children’s book author among other things, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives on a daily basis. I can’t wait to play my part in a world with no mental health stigma.
