Three people I would love to invite to dinner: Johnny Depp, Magda Szubanski, Oprah Winfrey.

The best advice I ever received was: From my Dad: "Don't think about it, get stuck into it and just do it!"

The most amazing thing I've ever done is: The whole process of having my children.

If I was down to my last $10 I would spend it on: Max Brenner's choc dip strawberries.

My greatest fear is: Not being able to do the job that I love ever again.

My fantasy job is: Already doing what I love, including working as a cycle coach at Pelotone, Sydney's premier indoor cycle studio. But if we're talking fantasy, then being Johnny Depp's personal trainer.

If I could have a superpower it would be: Fold my arms and blink to get whatever I wanted, like I Dream of Jeannie.

My favourite phrase is: "Life is too short my friend!"

My hidden talent is: I can sing . . . just a little.

If I could travel back in time, I would love to see/meet: Freddy Mercury.

The one thing I will never throw out: Make-up.

True love is: It's a few things: passion, acceptance, forgiveness, and friendship.

My last meal would be: Hot chips

My favourite phrase is:  ‘‘Life is too short my friend!’’

My first car was a: Volvo

I’m always being asked: How do I get a 6 pack?”

My most embarrassing moment was... I was teaching a body jam class with my fabulous new jam dance pants, only to find that cotton does not stretch with your body when doing vigorous dance moves. Let’s just say that my buttocks were feeling a lot of fresh air for the majority of the class.

What people may not know about me is: I have a Degree in Fine Arts, with a Diploma of Secondary Education.

Weirdest thing in my glove box: Paw paw ointment

My biggest fashion faux pas was: Wearing white Lycra full length tights with hot pink leg warmers….80’s fashion.

I wish I hadn’t: Waited this long to buy a beautiful new home

My earliest memory is: Going cherry picking at our friend's farm in the country.

On my bedside table is: My moisturiser. 

People say I look like: Jennifer Aniston????

A movie I think everyone should see: As Good As It Gets.

In the future… I’d like to go back to Paris and continue as a cycle coach at Pelotone indoor cycle studio in Norwest.

 Favourite book as a child: Cinderella.
