Angela loved playing sport all of her life and grew up in the country town of Griffith NSW, with a supportive family taking her to endless football (soccer) and tennis training, as well as representative tournaments. She also played touch football, netball, and swimming.
Being active all of her life led her to pursue a career in the health and fitness industry. Angela moved to Sydney to begin her tertiary studies and in her final year of her Bachelor’s Degree in Human Movement, she went under numerous investigations to identify the cause of irregular heart rhythms. She finished her degree and in December 2013, 2 weeks before her 21st birthday, Angela was diagnosed with a heart condition – arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, and she now lives with an implantable defibrillator. This came as a shock with no family history present.
Whilst still undergoing cardiac rehabilitation, Angela began her Masters in Exercise Physiology. Having this diagnosis meant that she had to give up competitive sport and it was during this time that Angela realized that not only her own life had changed, but she knew that she wanted to have a big impact on the health of others too.
Angela now likes to keep active by regular gym sessions, coastal walks and trying out new modalities like yoga and kayaking. She loves watching sport; particularly soccer, tennis, AFL, NRL, and netball.
As time has gone on, Angela has learned how to manage her own condition, both physically and mentally, and uses her own personal experience as a motivator and encouragement for others dealing with a chronic condition.
