Playing History: Started playing at age 12 at Torquay Tigers… After playing a year in A Grade when I was 15 I decided to trial for VNL and played 2019 in the premiership U19 City West Falcons team which then led to being selected in the ‘team of the year’. I was selected in the U19 state team for 2020 but due to covid didn’t get to compete. Moved to QLD at the start of 2021 and played in their Sapphire Series with Bond University and was selected in their 2021 U19 State squad prior to my decision to come back to Vic for personal reasons mid season. Played out what we could of 2021 with Torquay Tigers and decided to return to VNL for 2022.
What’s your favourite thing about the game? I love the friendships and connections you create with people in the team and the environment.
If you had to name one person who had an influence on your netball career, who would it be? I can’t pick one but two people who have had major influences on my netball. Firstly, Courtney Cuolahan who was my A Grade coach for the last 4 years who gave me the opportunity to come up to the level so young. And secondly, Sonia Harris who had a major impact on starting in VNL and giving me the idea to trial and helped me get to training/games.
What’s your favourite netball achievement – team and personal? Winning both the U19 VNL Premiership and Torquay A Grade premiership in 2019. Team of the Year in my first year of VNL in 2019
What do you do outside of netball? I work for my dad’s workwear business but much rather spend time with my friends and head to the beach at any opportunity.
What would be one interesting fact not many would know about you? I come from a family of 7 being right in the middle of 5 kids.
