Burke made her SI Swimsuit debut just this year earning a coveted spot in the Swimsuit Issue as a Rookie for SI Swimsuit in 2022, which shot in Barbados.

The SI Swimsuit Rookie walked in the SI Swimsuit Runway show at PARAISO Miami Beach at Miami Swim Week which is the “it” event of the summer, bringing attention to all that’s hot in the world of swimsuits for 2022. Burke wore swimwear from BAHÍA MARÍA, Left on Friday, and her own body positive swimwear line, Burke NYC.

Burke, however, is hardly a stranger to the swimwear industry as she’s posed for Polo Ralph Lauren swim and was previously the face of Torrid’s swimsuit collection. She created Burke NYC in 2019 in hopes of dismantling size consciousness.

Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, her Twitter bio notes that she is currently “living a New York plus size life” in Manhattan.

She began to pursue a full time career in the modeling industry at the age of 17 after being signed on the spot during her first agency meeting.

In addition to working with some of the most prestigious brands in the industry, she has posed for some of the industry’s most notable photographers like Ben Watts, Zoey Grossman and Yu Tsai.
