I grew up in the small town of Longwood (about 45 mins from Shepparton) and attended Longwood Primary School (very similar size to Ardmona Primary School) and attended secondary school at Euroa Secondary College. I then completed an AFL SportsReady Traineeship at Euroa Secondary College once I completed year 12. After this Traineeship I studied a Bachelor of Education (Primary/Secondary Strand) at La Trobe University in Bendigo majoring in Health and minoring in History. Once I completed uni, I moved to Mooroopna and got a job at Ardmona Primary School and I have loved every minute of it. In my spare time I like to read, go fishing and support the mighty Essendon Football Club.
