Jemma has spent her entire life as the outlier, paving the way so the next generation of girls have it a bit easier.
Jemma has a relaxed and smile-inspiring presence that makes her instantly approachable, believable and engaging. Jemma's experiences and outlook allow her to draw on her life to talk about many topics and to many different people.
With a professional career that was filled with ups and downs, Jemma proved herself on the world stage not only as one of the best racers in the world, but someone who had a big heart, and was determined to show that anything could be overcome with hard work, determination, and a positive mindset. Using her experiences from racing Australian and World Championships, in amongst studying her Bachelor of Laws as well as her Teaching Degree, Jemma’s informative talks about her career, her world travels, and her life as a whole are a refreshing take on the motorcycling industry and what it offers to people both young and old.
Now that her racing career is firmly in the rear view mirror, Jemma could not be more excited for the future ahead of her, continuing to fly the ambassador flag for some of her most loyal supporters, and doing everything she can to give back to an industry that has given her so much in return. “I could never turn my back on this industry that has shaped my entire life. It has given me so much and the support that I have received from individuals and companies over the past fifteen years is so humbling. Being an Keynote Speaker allows me to say thank you and do my part to share my knowledge with others, the way people did for me.” – Jemma. With an endless amount of exciting endeavours ahead of her, there’s no doubting that the future holds a many great things for Jemma and her partnering brands.
With Jemma's never ever give up attitude she has proven that if you want something, you can push through anything to get it. Racing Enduro is not for the faint hearted. There is no guarantee you will be able to conquer the obstacles strewn throughout the tests and trail loops. Then, add rain, an injury or two, a bad nights sleep because you could only afford the cheapest accommodation in Europe and you've got a struggle. But the feeling at the end of the race is guaranteed to be worth it. If you just keep pushing!
Health and Wellbeing
Jemma has had more than her fair share of injuries (shattered ankles, fractured back, plated wrist, knee reconstruction, hernia, broken nose, finger, toes and collarbone, concussions and more broken ankles) but they didn't stop her racing and they don't stop her from living an adventurous lifestyle now. Jemma has a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that includes an array of physical and mental approaches. Jemma believes that every person can make choices everyday that will help them live a healthier and happier life.
What it takes to be an Elite Athlete
Jemma was an elite athlete for ten years. Her entire focus was becoming a world enduro champion. Jemma loves to talk about what she thinks it took her to achieve all she achieved; dedication, dealing with adversity and celebrating the perks of the elite athlete lifestyle are the main topics but support networks and goal setting certainly get a word in too!
Jemma has spent her life pushing. She raced in the first women's class at the Australian Championships and was on the first Aussie Women's Team at the World Championships. She knows just how hard it is to achieve something you can't see. That's why Jemma is your perfect choice for a women's only conference or international women's day event. Jemma can talk about her experiences in a way that allows women of all age to engage with her material, regardless of whether they are interested in bikes or riding them. And they will be inspired to get out, push the boundaries and achieve!
