She has coached a wide variety of FOBISIA, SEASAC and ISST sports teams, as well as, teaching Drama and introducing dance to various school curriculums.

She is a passionate advocate for health and well-being, and more recently has worked with vulnerable adolescents and sick children, supporting them with their education whilst they face their personal struggles.
