I am an active member of Alexandra Headland Surf Club and a Masters Surfboat rower.
I have had two Great Uncles that served in PNG during WW2.
I first trekked Kokoda in 2009 and became inspired by the story of Kokoda.

In 2007, I was drawn to Kokoda and found the experience so uplifting; it was to change my life forever. I feel extremely privileged to be in a position where I can not only add value to peoples lives but often share a life changing experience, this is very humbling to me.

The challenge of the Kokoda track drew me here in 2012, and it was on this trip were I fell in love with the rich history and the people along the track.
I am passionate about Kokoda, our history, the people of the track and their rich culture and heritage.
The opportunity to take those seeking adventure on a bucket list trip and share the history and also their stories along the way in itself is an uplifting experience for me personally.

My first Kokoda Spirit trek was an almost spiritual, life changing experience that opened my eyes to the inspiring events that occurred in 1942.
As a primary school teacher, the opportunity to guide groups has sparked my enthusiasm and desire to better educate young Australians about the commitment made by those who defended our country, and to honour the courageous ones who gave their lives on the Kokoda trail.

I initially completed the Kokoda track for charity in 2013 and it was such an incredible experience I always knew I would go back.

When the opportunity came up to guide groups of like-minded adventurers across the unique track, I jumped at the chance.
