1. If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
• energetic
• driven
• ambitious

2. What is a typical day in your life?
My day always begins with some form of movement, typically at the crack of dawn. It's usually a refreshing long run or an intense gym session. There's no better way to kickstart the morning than with a rush of endorphins.
When I get home, I prepare for the day, make my coffee, an electrolyte drink, and some breakfast. By around 8:30 a.m., I sit down at my desk, ready to dive into work. I work for Upstate Studios as their social media coordinator and am fortunate to work from home every day, which provides incredible flexibility. From 8:30 a.m. to midday, I check in on all our social channels, plan content, reply to emails, and usually have a few meetings (the to-do list never ends, haha). At midday, I like to get outside for a walk, then come home to make lunch before tackling the second half of the workday.
Around 5 p.m., I wrap up work for the day. Afterward, I usually engage in some form of exercise again, having been sitting for most of the day. This is generally a walk or a Pilates session at Upstate. Most evenings, I have dinner with a friend or my boyfriend, then head to bed around 9 p.m. I read a bit (or scroll on TikTok) before hitting the hay early.

3. What is your favourite way to move your body?
100% running. It has changed my life. There is no better feeling than getting up and running when the sun is rising. The endorphins are unmatched and I love how I feel both mentally and physically once I’ve completed a run!

4. What are your passions / hobbies?
Running and exercise are definitely the main ones. I love moving my body and feeling healthy! I’m so passionate about the importance of movement and I love testing my body + mind and setting performance-based goals.

I am also passionate about learning about all things marketing! It's an industry that's constantly shifting and evolving. To stay competitive in business, you need to stay ahead of the curve. I'm committed to continually upskilling myself and mastering the art of marketing.

5. Describe your day to day uniform.
As I work from home, my day-to-day uniform is super simple. Almost always activewear - cute flares, some sneakers and a sporty long sleeve (generally with another jumper on top because its freezing in melbs atm!). Even though what I wear every day is simple, I love to elevate it with some accessories - big gold earrings, chunky statement rings and a simple gold necklace!
