A bit about myself …

Like most girls I didn’t start off playing footy when I was a youngster, instead playing netball, basketball, swimming competitively and trying many other sports such as ballet, gymnastics, tennis and soccer. As soon as the BL&G competition started up, in 2018, I started playing for my hometown club, the Angaston Panthers. I played 8 games for them and then won the Premiership in the inaugural women’s season. Unfortunately I did my ACL in the same year. I came back to footy the next season, starting pre-season at Central Districts where I continued to hone my skills and ruck craft, and played 3 games before COVID-19 hit the season. After that, I went out to play at Angle Vale FC, the Hooters, where I played out their season as a ruck(wo)man and received their Most Consistent and Players Player trophies, which was very unexpected and flattering.

Tell us 3 things you like to do outside of football

I keep pretty active in my “spare time” trying my hand at any activity. I love SUPing, Yoga, Hiking, Pilates and a good arm pump with BRG 2. I love cooking delicious food for friends and family 3. I could read a good book all day if I had enough time.

I have a twin brother, and no, we are not identical!
