A bit about myself I grew up playing basketball and netball and then thought it would be a fun idea to try and play football. Thankfully my twin brother grew up playing football so I was always expected to know how to kick a footy with him. Although knowing how to kick a footy and actually playing the game are very different things, I found that out very quickly.

Nickname? Keels.

What is your original club? Nuriootpa Rovers Football Club.

Match day motivation song? “All I want for Christmas” – Mariah Carey, it just gets me in a good mood.

What is your field of work and/or study? Double degree in exercise and sports science / psychological science.

Funniest team mate? Lauren Breguet only because she has the worst dad jokes and can annoy anyone within 5 secs of meeting them.

What player in your team do you reckon is going to set the competition alight this year? Laitiah Huynh with her speed and agility to literally dodge any player that comes near her. Alongside Maddy Lane who has worked incredibly hard on her fitness and has this aggression that all players desire.

Toughest player in the team? Shannon Murphy, although she gets more scared of others, no one wants to go against her at training. Of course the skip, Shelby Smith, I mean she scares me at training so I think that’s a valid reason.

What is your weapon? (what is your strength as a footballer?) I am quite a strong player who can take a decent mark.

Tell us 3 things you like to do outside of football Unfortunately I study full time, which means I don’t really have a life. In my spare time I do have between uni and footy I work as a lifeguard and No, before you ask, I am not Pamela Anderson (although I do look strikingly similar).

Tell us one thing we don’t know about you I have a fear of the ocean. Unless I can see the bottom of the ocean, I am not going in.
