    "I am a current member of Team Unity (AUS) and have competed at both national and international competitions. I am currently also a Level 1 Coach with aspirations to move into synchro coaching at the end of my competitive skating career. I am always up-to-date with the current ISU communications and have a significant interest in the more technical side of the sport. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of New South Wales, which occupies most of my time outside of skating."
