Hailing from Southern Australia, Ali is a water kid through and through. Brought up swimming, and now into surfing and surf life saving, Ali can practically talk and breathe underwater.
Finishing the final legs of a Human Movement & Sports Science degree, Ali has recently put her skills to work as a rehab and recovery coach. Now branching into Surf Life Saving, Ali holds a number of positions at her SLS club, and has attended a National Leadership College.
With her love and passion for water sports, surfing is another major focus, especially the ASP world tour. Her favourite surfers Mick Fanning, Jordy Smith and Patrick Gudauskus are inspirations and spark her interests for surf writing.
As the recently inducted female columnist for Pen & Paper Blog, Ali is always looking forward to new challenges and living life to the fullest.
