Q: Were you nervous about being a city girl in a small rural town?
"A: I was very nervous that people were going to judge and stereotype me as being more of a “stuck up, city girl” which I am totally not! I gave it a red hot crack when I first moved here and got myself involved in the community. I will never forget how supportive everyone was of my business from when I first opened until the present time."
Q: What have you learned about rural people?
"A: They are beautiful, incredible, strong, down-to-earth, kind, genuine and just absolute legends!"
Q: What do you find the most challenging about living in a small rural town?
"A: My biggest challenge would be living so far from other fitness studios, the beach, restaurants (different cuisines), cafes with smoothie bowls, further education that isn’t online. Basically all things that you just make the drive for when you can as all people living in rural areas do.
Those times in life when you are absolutely exhausted or in a hurry and just want to race into the shops... it doesn’t happen in a rural town as you end up seeing and talking to everyone hahaha."
Q: What do you love the most about living in a small rural town?
"A: Having a community of cheerleaders that live all around you! If I ever need anything at all there is an endless list of selfless people I could call and they would be there. Everyone is part of a big team and we all come together, especially in tough times!"
