Q: Where is your club located in Australia?
A: Palm Beach Physie is located on the magnificent Gold Coast of Queensland where it is “beautiful one day, perfect the next.”

Q: When you started your club, what surprised you?
A: I was surprised at the response and the excitement it generated. I’ve started with a fantastic group and am excited about our future.

Q: What do you love most about teaching Physie?
A: I love watching it all come together and seeing when it finally clicks. And all the laughs we have along the way.

Q: How long have you been doing Physie?
A: On and off for about 30 years. I started when I was 3, had a long hiatus in my 20s-30s due to working overseas and then went back when I was 40.

Q: What’s your favourite routine?
A: I am loving the ladies’ advanced. I love the song and the choreography is perfect for it. I love the emotion it brings out.

Q: What’s your favourite inspirational quote?
A: “Be the person you want to have in your life.” I want to be surrounded by positive and supportive people so that is what I try to be to others. It’s not always easy but it can be as simple as starting with a smile. ?

Q: What’s your favourite Physie memory?
A: My favourite memories from recent years are trips down south for competitions with my club mates. Being from Queensland we have to travel south quite a bit but I definitely look forward to it every year. It’s a great chance to catch up with the wider Physie community.

Q: Who has inspired you the most on your Physie journey and why?
A: Definitely my mum! She has been doing physie since she was a young girl and is still going strong at 80. She was also my teacher as a junior at Balgowlah and is my biggest supporter as a competitor and, now, as a teacher. (You can see her in the old team photo – I’m second from left… love the 70s hair dos!)

Q: What lies ahead for your Physie club?
A: I hope that at Palm Beach Physie I can help foster the same camaraderie that I grew up with, “Friendship first, competition second.” I believe that is how a successful community is built.
