When did you start orienteering?
2006 when I moved to WA. I grew up in Ballarat but amazingly, despite having a teacher who was into orienteering, I never really knew about it until I moved to Perth. I started rogaining first, when I was at Uni.
Who/what inspired you to start?
Gary. It was a big part of his life in WA so I just joined in.
What do you do when not orienteering ?
Look after our young son Sean. Sew, try and grow vegies, travel.
What is ONE thing you like about orienteering ?
The chance to make friends of all ages, and then see interstate friends at national events.
A piece of advice for newcomers to the sport?
Don't run faster than you can navigate.
Highlight/lowlight of your O career?
Winning Australian titles for my age class. Lowlight - running off the map entirely!
Favourite/most unusual/most scenic place you have orienteered?
Peterdine - a lovely WA map - open rocky area, always sunny and warm.
