SINCE WHEN DO YOU SURF/MODEL/BLOG?
I started modelling over 10 years ago, and surfing back shortly after that and I guess the blog did too. I have always loved sharing my work with people and the blog just seemed like the perfect way to do just that.
WHERE DOES YOUR PASSION FOR SURFING/BLOGGING COME FROM?
Living by the coast I couldn't escape surfing and I instantly fell love with it and like I said before the more I did the more I wanted to share. I also loved sharing my experiences with people, especially women. I am surrounded by surfers and have been most of my life so ending up working within the surf industry was always something that was going to happen.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO START MODELING?
I never really wanted to model, it was just something that happened quite randomly. I got asked to shoot for a lingerie store that a friend of mine was opening and a store. I did the shoot and then from that other work came and it just grew from there.
WHAT ACHIEVEMENT OF YOURS ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
It's hard to give one because I am actually quite proud of a lot of things. I guess whether it's a big achievement like getting the cover or a magazine or something smaller like hosting a great women's surf day, I am equally as proud.
WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU SHARE WITH OTHER GIRLS/ WOMEN?
That we should empower one another. Don't ever see another women as a threat. Jealously is a horrible thing and can really ruin a person. We should see each others success and celebrate it, feel inspired by it and empowered. I learned over the years to not take peoples negative comments personally because usually it's because they have their own insecurities that they are trying to deal with and probably see you are a threat. Rise above it, keep smashing your goals and support the women around you!
WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL / DREAM?
To build a successful business around surfing, modelling, writing and travelling. My dream is to do this before I have a family, so I can continue working but also enjoying the lifestyle that I love at the same time. The 9-5 lifestyle does not suit me, I am built for more freedom and flexibility and that I what I shall have.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM / WHERE ARE YOU CURRENTLY BASED?
I was born in the West Midlands in England, but now I love on the coast in a town called Newquay in Cornwall.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING AND WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I work as Assistant Editor for SurfGirl magazine and work as a Freelance Surfer and Model for a variety of brands. In my free time I surf, workout and travel as much as I can.
ASIDE FROM SURFING, WHAT OTHER PASSIONS DO YOU HAVE / WHAT SPARKS YOU?
I have a passion for travelling and exploring. It goes hand in hand with being a surfer and it keeps my mind, body and soul happy when I am off exploring and wandering around new places. It doesn't even have to be travelling aboard, I love exploring my home county and country.
WHAT/WHO INSPIRES/MOTIVATES YOU?
I am inspired by lots of people. I follow a lot of amazing women who are carving their own path and empowering other women to do the same. I am inspired by my friends and family to push myself. Surfing as sport keeps me motivated and it also keeps me sane!
Any women who are excelling in their field inspire me, wether it's in sport, work, business or even being a awesome mom!
