B.Ex.Sc M.Clin.Ex.P ESSAM
I was brought up playing a variety of competitive sport both individual and team-based. I operated my first gym at the age of 24 and 10 years on I have proudly built a community-based business improving the health and fitness of many individuals.
I am driven to learn, up skill and to grow myself professionally and to grow a team around me with similar direction. I have completed a bachelors, Masters and post-graduate degrees/certificates in the field of health science. I am passionate about delivering exercise that influences the ability for an individual to improve their functional being and educates to promote a healthy lifestyle and ageing process. I fell in love with the concept of functional training as it could be delivered to young and older clients.
I have played high-level sport and represented Australia in Indoor soccer and touch football winning a World Cup in 2015. I have since retired from team-sport and moved into competing in golf and triathlons, probably the two most difficult sports to train and master. I am the type of person who is constantly on the go so I have had to learn how to slow down and take a time-out.
I grew up loving sport and exercise. It was a natural transition to study my bachelor in exercise and sport science and masters degree in clinical exercise physiology.
I have been working in the industry for 2 years and am a big believer in moving and staying active in mind and body. As I have done this most of my life I know how rewarding it can be and want to share my passion with others supporting and encouraging them to achieve their goals.
I believe health and fitness is a lifelong journey and I am a strong advocate for enjoying all things in life which is why chocolate and cheese feature daily in my diet.
I currently play women’s rugby union 7s for a Sydney based team and am often sporting contact related bruises at work.
Bachelor exercise & sports science, Cert III & IV in fitness, Doctor of physiotherapy, ACE certified boxing instructor, Lvl 1 sports trainer
Name a team sport and I’ve probably played it. I grew up with an unbridled love of anything that didn’t involve sitting still for more than 10 minutes. I played soccer for 20yrs (2yrs in USA), Softball for 15yrs and state level Oztag fot 5yrs. I retired from all of these unfortunately due to a serious knee injury which left me feeling lost with what to do with all of my energy.
My down time provided me with a passion to help others with their own injuries and to assist them to reach their goals and return to the things they love doing most.
Outside of all this, I’m an amateur carpenter and ballroom dancer and an F1 enthusiast. ( I’m also a closet RuPaul’s Drag Race Fan!)

I started karate when I was 6 years old, and I have been training ever since. I competed and placed in numerous state, national and international competitions where I met a lot of amazing people and where my love for movement and health stemmed from! The curiosity behind movement led me to pursue a bachelor of sport and exercise science and was immediately captivated by the benefits of exercise on our wellbeing.
If I look a bit confused, its most likely because my mind constantly switches between English and Croatian and I forget which language I’m supposed to speak! Or I forgot my coffee.
