My life as a Physie teacher in 5 words is ….. Challenging but always worth it!
The best piece of advice I ever received was …… Appreciate how far you’ve come…. and then keep going!
My favourite Physie moment was when …. My number was called to compete in Ladies Grand in 2018. It was the moment I realised I had been awarded my first ever national place. I was incredibly proud to then be awarded the Under 33 and Overall Ladies National Champion that night. This would have to be closely followed by sharing the 125 Year Spectacular choreography experience with my best friend, Miss Steph!
When I’m not doing Physie I’m ….. an Occupational Therapist working with older adults in slow stream rehabilitation and studying my Masters of Gerontology. I love my job and the role I play in helping people return to live at home after a major life event.
I’ll always be grateful for …. the incredible relationships I have made and strengthened through physie. Because of physie, I am part of a club community that often feels more like a family and have made friendships for life. I also have the opportunity to share every experience with my mum and I’m always so proud to have her as my right hand.
If I could go back and tell my younger self something I would say ….. Through everything in life, physie will be your constant. Use it as your outlet, something to challenge you and a place to be happy. Whatever is going on in your life, a good physie practice or teaching a class of giggling girls (or ladies) can put it all into perspective and turn your day around.
The best way to be happy in life is to …. do physie!
Physie teachers never die they just …. live on in each new generation of physie girls because of the lessons they teach you and the impression they make.
