Q: When did you start physie?

A: I started at age 5 at Gladesville Methodist club and moved to North Ryde at 21. I’ve worked much harder in the Ladies and have been more successful as a lady than as a junior or senior – a late bloomer you could say.

Q: What do you enjoy about physie?

A: I get so much enjoyment out of improving my work and learning more and more about physie, like at the recent Teachers’ Seminar where I took my first ever Ballet class.  Physie gives me the challenge of always trying to improve my work so that I can pass it on to others.

Q: What do you like about teaching?

Q: What has physie given you?

A: It’s given me so much confidence that I can carry through in life.  I’ve made so many friends and have some fabulous memories of competitions, weekends away and especially performing in the Opening Ceremony of the 2000 Olympic Games.

Q: What’s something about physie that you didn’t expect?

A: My boys, who are now in their twenties, think that I am wonderful for my age and that’s really nice to hear.  The bottom line is that physie is a huge part of my life and I love it!!
