As teenagers we played Netball with & against each other... I love watching her kill it on the netty court all these years later (the belly laughs when she's around haven't changed one bit either) & was pretty chuffed when the legend herself @sharni_layton asked me to be her first guest/victim 😂 for 'On The Ball' including her rapid fire round of questions. Check out the @magpiesnetball link in my bio for the full interview. @australiancyclingteam @cyclingaustralia @ausparalympics #aussiecycling
Recently I had the opportunity to speak at a fabulous event alongside this fabulous women, what a dead set legend @rachaelrobertson9938 is! 🐧☃❄ As Australia's most in demand female speaker I was a little fan girly knowing I'd get to see her speak & also had fan girly nerves knowing she was there whilst I spoke! Turns out we both grew up in Gtown & now reside in the #westisbest. How crazy! Just love how life draws you towards new & like minded friends & stories when you least expect it. 👌 #motivationalspeaker #inspirationalspeaker #speaker
