In the beginning, it was that I lived in a rural area and my Dad and older brother rode. Trail-riding and then racing was a hobby for many years and then slowly it morphed into my whole world. I finished High School with the goal to be a lawyer, but somewhere throughout the Law Degree, the blinkers came on and my entire focus shifted to racing.
A love for everything that motorcycling is. Enduro took me around the world and has made me who I am today. Nothing is impossible after you've completed some of the World Enduro GP's and International Six Day Enduros I have finished. Motorcycling is freedom and adventure.
If you love it, you will find a way. Every girl out there has a story and battles (some bigger than others) to overcome to get to the race on the weekend. Never make excuses and don't focus on your competitor. You can't change what they do, have or say, only what you do, have and say.
I have just retired from 13 years of racing Australian Championships and 9 years of racing Worlds. I lasted longer in the industry then almost anyone else I know... and I didn't make any money from it.
Looking back, the thing that always kept me going a true love for the sport and a real desire to keep achieving. I am really lucky that I was able to keep finding the passion to race for so many years.
Find a way to make some money... being pennyless at 30 sucks! Jokes...
I went from school, to uni, to racing worlds, back to uni and now I am using my knowledge and experiences to carve out a great career in the industry that I love, so it's not all about money.
I would honestly tell myself to do exactly what I did. Chase the dream!
My aspirations are that girls will be seen as equal to the boys by the industry and society.
The industry can find it difficult to see outside of the 'male dominated sport box' when it comes to sponsorship and contingency but in the 15 years that I have been involved in the sport, so many changes have occurred, for the better.
It's all about growth and the more girls that get involved the better it will be for everyone, especially those females who are racing.
There are just too many!
