Tasmania played a crucial role in my coaching development through seven years as Head Track & Field Coach at the Tasmanian Institute of Sport. 

I am thrilled to be an official ambassador of TASSACC and will be striving with them to improve sports coaching throughout Tasmania. A co-ordinated, collective approach is the best way to achieve the best possible sporting performance and health outcomes for everyone.
