Her main event is the heptathlon but did not meet the Olympic qualifying standard in the event for the 2016 Olympic Games. Instead she received an invitation to compete in the 100m hurdles. "The Olympics is going to be different for me because I am not going to be in the heptathlon, which is obviously my main event. It will be different for me because I will be concentrating on just one event. The hurdles are not one of my strongest events, but it is not my weakest, so I've got a lot of room for improvement."

She was born in England but holds dual citizenship in the UK and Belize because her father was born in Dangriga, Belize. She chose to represent Belize in athletics in 2010. (Facebook page, 31 Jul 2016)
