Hometown: Canberra, Australia
Age: 28

Degree: Economics.
Greatest cycling achievement: Racing for the Fearless Femme. Sampling the sprinters jersey, climbers jersey and a $1000 sprinters prime from break aways in races after returning from the States to Australian racing. 2nd place at the Williamstown Michelton Bay Cycling Classic criterium 2017.
Favorite post ride food: A vanilla milkshake with poached eggs on smashed avocado… and a coffee (which is also my favorite pre-ride food).
Favorite band: Hmmm…I’m not hip enough to keep up with music. Whatever is catchy.
Fondest childhood memory on the bike: Exploring trails on the mountain bike.
Why Fearless Femme: I’m a returning Fearless Femme after an awesome experience in 2016. I love how this small but powerful wild card team races. We race fearlessly to support each other, to give our best and hopefully to inspire others to trust their instinct and race hard. We also make sure we always soak up the fun, festival atmosphere that American criterium racing has to offer!
