Her mission was to find the answers that would fill the gaps in her knowledge and answer her questions.

She completed her Bachelor of Applied Fitness (2013) and continued to a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science (2017) and finally to her masters In Exercise Physiology (2021) after delays due to Covid.
