She's a lifesaver - Audrey

Hi Team Tama!

Welcome back to another happy, uplifting piece from Tama this week. 

This week, it’s time to profile one of our many French members! I am also now on the same patrol as this next special guest. She is a bit of an expert on the boards, great fun to hang out with on patrol, and one of the ‘Fit Bronzies’ (who do a triathlon every day before breakfast).
Introducing Dr. Audrey, who became a doctor last year after finishing her PHD in Biomedical Informatics and Digital Health, congrats Audrey! Audrey is super active, loves scuba diving, swimming, and basically every activity really, just ask Audrey…

Over to Audrey and thanks everyone for reading.

Zoe, VP


Audrey helps keep an eye on those Tama SLSC dogs who also love our beach...

Tell us a bit about yourself: 3 words that best describe you: Frenchie, love social interactions, and adore food.

How did you get in Surf Life Saving? How did you join Tama? I have been swimming since I was a kid and started to compete as a teenager. When I turned 18, I passed my certificate to become a lifeguard in France. Water has always been my thing.
When I came to Australia for the first time (in 2016) I was not really swimming - but did miss it a lot. Many other priorities and fun activities to do and as we know time flies. 
Last year I was chatting about all this with one of my friends that I met running (Rob Foulkes) and he told me about Tama. The following Wednesday I was at the information night. That was that simple to convince me.

What are the best things about being part of the Surf Life Saving community? First - It is an awesome social community - where you meet FRIENDS. 
Second - Best way to get your fitness back (especially during Bronzie). 
Third - There are always people keen to do something (swim, bootcamp, dive, run, drinks, food).
Fourth - you can swim or paddle with the Dolphins with the sunset or sunrise ;)

What has been your biggest achievement from being part of Surf Lifesaving? Keeping sane while completing my PhD. Tama SLSC has been a huge part of my work-health balance last year. 

Tell us about what you do when not on the beach at Tama looking after people? Hanging out with the Tama crew (ahah)

How would you describe our community at Tama? Super friendly and full of people with interesting stories/backgrounds.

Favourite place to go for food in Sydney? Hard to tell - there are way too many. 

Ideal holiday destination right now? Anywhere a bit less rainy and warm! 

What would be your advice to any woman thinking to give surf lifesaving a go? Just go - and come meet us! It's fun :)

Thanks Audrey for being part of our Tama women profile series and being part of our club.

Come and say hi to Audrey and Patrol 11, Sunday afternoons :) 

See you all next week for the next profile, have a great week.
