Get to know Storm in 5 points:
- Storm is a bit of a homebody, preferring to hang out with her family and pets rather than be out and about. Favourite things to do as a family would be to conquer escape rooms, enjoy a home cooked dinner and play Bananagrams (Storm’s favourite game).
- To keep physically active Storm has a love for Crossfit. You’ll find Storm at the “box” most days of the week, moving her body and working on personal fitness goals. She’s that committed she will even get up on a cold Winter’s morning to make the early session so as not to miss a class for the day!
- Storm’s favourite way to relax is to potter in her garden. With a variety of plants and vegetables growing in her backyard, harvesting some home-grown vegetables always puts a smile on her face. Recently her inside plant collection has grown exponentially and her family have had to adjust to the new home décor.
- In the warmer months you’ll find Storm and her family often set off camping to get away from it all and spend some time in the outdoors. One of their favourite destinations is Kenilworth and now the Kenilworth Bakery are doing gluten free donuts makes for an extra incentive to head in that direction.
- Storm was diagnosed Coeliac at the young age of 16 and has not only learned to live with this disease but to celebrate it, embracing that a small dietary change will help to ensure a long and healthy life.
