Can you tell us about your background and how you got started in Muay Thai?
I did dancing as a kid (very un-Muay Thai 😝), but after I stopped in my late teens, I didn't consistently exercise for years. I knew I needed to find a new sport to keep fit and maintain my high-snack diet. When I saw an ad for WFC pop-up on my Facebook one day, although I had no idea what the hell Muay Thai was, I decided to give it a go. I had always loved punching on with my guy friends and getting into "play" fights so it seemed up my alley. I did a 4 week Muay Thai intro program through WFC where you learn the basics, and was hooked immediately! From then on I probably went to every class they ran, and haven't looked back since!
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Hungry, logical, stressed!! 😂
Who would you think would be a great opponent for you in the near future? Who’s on your radar?
I think a fight between Rosie Felberg and myself would be a ripper display of Muay Thai. 2 Melbourne girls going to war in the ring! She's got great technique and that clean Thai style 😚🤌🏼
If you weren’t training or coaching Muay Thai, what do you think you’d be doing?
Last year I completed my Bachelor of Economics degree... So I'd probably be a data analyst or something 🤣🤮 (no offence data analysts! 😂)
If you could only use one strike/technique for the rest of your fighting career, what would it be?
Lead teep >>>>> any other strike! I said what I said!
