In a typ­i­cal work­ing week…

I try to get to the gym three times, but it usu­ally ends up be­ing twice. I do Pump or RPM classes and go early – like 5am early, be­cause my hus­band has to go to work and I’m in charge of our three-year-old daugh­ter dur­ing the day. Ev­ery morn­ing, I try to or­gan­ise an ac­tiv­ity for her, then my days are spent ei­ther auditioning, do­ing voice jobs, or prep­ping for my act­ing classes at [Auck­land’s] Point Che­va­lier Drama Club, which I run for kids twice a week. I also coach my eight-year-old’s netball team and she does a mil­lion dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties, so I ba­si­cally run around af­ter her so­cial life.

Week­ends are…

spent with fam­ily. We don’t go out much any­more, al­though my hus­band and I try to do a date night ev­ery cou­ple of weeks.

Our mar­riage coun­sel­lor says that’s im­por­tant!

My most em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment was…

a long time ago. I don’t get em­bar­rassed these days, al­though my daugh­ter says I’m con­stantly shame­ful.

Top of my bucket list is…

fly­ing Emi­rates first class some­where that takes 25 hours to get to. Is that too much to ask for?
