OTHER ACTIVITIES
She has been involved in coaching weightlifting in Australia, including at national level. In 2009 she started a CrossFit personal business called CrossFit Base. "I'd eventually like to be a strength and conditioning coach for Olympic-level weightlifters and it's essential I do this [coaching and exercise science] degree [at University of Canberra] so I'm qualified and able to move forward in that area."

HIGHER WEIGHT CLASS
Prior to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, she competed in the 69kg category, but for the 2014 Games she moved up to the 75kg division, where she has remained ever since. "I responded quite well and my strength and everything's gone up, having the extra body weight on me. It takes a lot of stress out not having to worry about dropping weight, so I'm able to eat as normal and drink as normal." (SportsDeskOnline, 22 Jun 2018; smh.com.au, 28 Jul 2014)
