Originally from a small country town in NSW, Michaela moved to Wollongong to pursue her degree in Exercise Science. Growing up, Michaela participated in almost every sport available including soccer, swimming, high jump, dancing, touch footy and league tag.
From a young age Michaela’s love for sports and physical activity grew, and Michaela knew she wanted to work in a career focused on improving individuals health through exercise and active living.
Michaela hopes to one day be an exercise physiologist and continue her dream of helping others achieve an active and fulfilled life.
