I was lucky enough to swim for Australia for the better part of a decade. During that time I collected 24 gold medals on the international stage across Olympic, Commonwealth Games and World Championship events. This included four Olympic Gold Medals, eight long course and seven short course world titles and five Commonwealth Games gold. I have also previously held World Records in the 50m Freestyle, 100m Freestyle (long and short course), 200m Freestyle (short course) and the 100m Butterfly (short course).

Since retiring from swimming over 5 years ago, I have tried my hand at loads of things to see where life would take me post-sport. It was important for me to explore, as it allowed me to find my new passions outside of the pool.

I have worked in Sales and Marketing in a start up technology company before joining Triple M as part of the afternoon drive shift – with ‘Luke and Dobbo’. I have also worked for the past 3 years as the Queensland Government’s Mental Health Ambassador.

I am also mother to two gorgeous and slightly bonkers little girls, Poppy and Edwina. They are my greatest achievement and without a doubt the most challenging things I’ve taken on in my life! I have been married to my husband, Luke, since 2007 and sometimes it feels like I have three children, with him being my big kid!
