FIRST CAR: 

Holden Gemini 1995 (3 of the doors didn't work and my exhaust dragged along the ground when I drove, however it lasted me 4 years!) haha


DREAM CAR: 

Red Toyota Rav 4 so the netball kit and doggos fit nice and easy!


BEST ROAD TRIP: 

My partner and I drove from Adelaide to Port Lincoln and stopped off and spent a few days on the beautiful coast along the way.


WHAT MOTIVATES YOU THE MOST: 

What motivates me is being surrounded by strong people who have the drive to succeed in life and to better themselves and others everyday.

Buying my first house

Selling my first house! (I am also working in real estate)


NEXT BIG GOAL:

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO PARTNER WITH JOHN MADILL TOYOTA AND MADILL MOTOR GROUP: 

My passion other than playing netball is also bringing sport to the community especially in regional areas where it is not as easy to get into the city. I believe every child no matter what their back ground is should have the same opportunities in sport no matter where they live. John Madill Toyota are very community focused and love to give back to the community in whatever way they can. Their support of community events and giving back to charity too is also what drew me John Madill and is something that I love to be involved with as well.


ANYTHING MORE TO TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:

I moved to the Sunshine Coast two months ago from Adelaide with my Chocolate Labrador called Evie and we are both loving it!!! I am also a Real Estate agent and have a passion for property.
