My Physie club is located in … Mosman in Sydney

My life as a Physie teacher in 5 words is … Extremely rewarding, fun and enjoyable.

The best piece of advice I ever received was … Treat people how you like to be treated.

My favourite Physie moment was when …. I have a few! Last year teaching a winning ladies B grade team and also being in a Senior team that won it’s section in A grade (and participating in a playoff).  Being selected to compete in Grand in 2015 was also an experience I will never forget. And I have really enjoyed participating in non-Physie competitions like the Netball World Cup, Easter show performances and the 125 Year Spectacular.

I’ll never give up Physie because …. It provides me with attributes like strength, flexibility and good posture. I also get the opportunity to compete with many friends I have made over the years and enjoy many celebratory moments with them. I love that Physie is so inclusive, helps build confidence and develops lifelong friendships.

When I’m not doing Physie I’m …. Teaching Maths at a boy’s high school in Westmead, or eating, visiting friends, going for a walk/run and leaving the house as much as possible after lockdown!

I’ll always be grateful for …. Everything my mum does for me for Physie (and other aspects of life). She does my hair, makeup, helps me choose what to wear, watches me practice and compete and is very excited to watch competitions again this year.

If I could go back and tell my younger self something, I would say … Each performance isn’t going to be perfect. But strive to make it better than the last by listening, watching, practicing and enjoying each moment you are on the floor. In other words have fun!

The best way to be happy in life is to … Enjoy what you do and surround yourself with people who encourage you to be the best person you can be.

Physie teachers never die they just …. March into the next life!
