What’s your role in the WWOT team? 

As the Content and Engagement Editor, I work closely with the marketing and PR teams to make sure our digital content is top notch. I do lots of writing, editing, planning and creating. I also I support the CEO and General Manager with social media, digital engagement and profile building. 

What is your favourite thing about the WWOT community?

I love hiking, and I love women, so a community of women hikers is absolutely my dream. Wild Women On Top is a life-changing social enterprise which has supported so many women to find health and happiness, and that just lights me up. Plus, having the opportunity to work in a 'work hard, play hard' environment is rare and such a privilege. 

What’s at the top of your bucket list?

My next adventure is the Kumano Kodo in Japan with my incredible partner and then Iceland with a group of Wild Women On Top in 2018. After that, Machu Picchu tops the list! 

Where will we find you on a Sunday morning?

Either snuggled in bed with coffee, out on a hike with friends or at a yoga class. Then brunch, of course. 

What’s the wildest adventure you’ve ever been on?

Hiking to Everest Base Camp, Nepal or summitting Mt Kinabalu, Borneo in a typhoon tie for the wildest. But the most awesome and fun adventure I've been on was hiking up Mt Olympus in Greece and exploring Crete with some wild goddesses. 

What motto or mantra do you live by?

Life is too important to be taken seriously.

Girls in Greece
Teenage girls live in a world where reality is warped by Instagram filters and Photoshop, where friends look like models and models feel like friends. They exist in a society that values ‘likes’ and ‘comments’, ‘follows’ and ‘shares’, one where beauty is defined by brands that profit from your insecurity. So what does all this have to do with hiking? Everything. Because hiking can dismantle it all.

When I first heard of Wild Women On Top, it went by a different name. I was sitting on the stairs of my childhood home when my mother, a radio journalist/stay-at-home-mum/queen of my universe announced that she was starting a group called Mum’s Kick Arse. Which I thought was the lamest name in the world. It started as a group of school mums, getting out into the beautiful bushland and coastal tracks around Sydney. Today, it’s an empire. A community. A tribe. And for me, it’s time to say goodbye.

Happy Fit Xmas you Wild Ones….You have been super energetic this year with more training, more adventures and more fun than ever before.
It is so tempting to spend the holidays lazing on the couch, binge drinking and mindless eating in the spirit of the holidays.It’s hard not to go back for seconds at Christmas lunch, when the table is laden with delicacies. But how often do we start the New Year with a food baby and no energy, our joy quickly fading as reality sets in? This is the year to change and we're going to show you how.
