Raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Ramona grew up a dedicated stage performer, gymnast and dancer before continuing on to competed at a national level in gymnastics, touch football and snowboarding. Her tertiary studies in Outdoor Education and Wilderness Survival took her on many great adventures across Australia from SCUBA diving to white water kayaking to rock climbing and alpine touring.
