A bit about myself: I’ve loved footy from the age of 5! I’ve jumped through many hoops to pull on the guernsey and boots to play, but I am super happy to be where I am now. Before football I played a variety of sports including; basketball, cricket, gaelic, netball, soccer, swimming, and athletics. I was most successful in athletics where I represented SA in javelin and shot put. My favourite position in footy is the wing because it’s such a versatile position to play that you can really make your own – plus it comes with so much unrewarded running.

Nickname? PALLAN.

What is your original club? Tanunda Football Club.

Match day motivation song? Everytime We Touch by Cascada.

What is your field of work and/or study? I work as a manager in the sport and recreation industry and am currently studying sport and recreation management to further myself professionally.

Funniest team mate? Ella ‘Micko’ Mickan.

What player in your team do you reckon is going to set the competition alight this year? Isabelle Starmer, she has been absolutely elite off the field and during pre-season, so I look forward to seeing what she brings to the field this season!

Toughest player in the team? Shelby Smith.

What is your weapon? Speed, I love a good run down the wing when I get the chance!

Tell us 3 things you like to do outside of football: I enjoy cooking delicious food – I enjoy writing poetry and playing my saxophone – I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, including my family, my doggo Winston and my partner (only a ‘loved one’ when we are not in opposing guernseys).

Tell us one thing we don’t know about you: I am one of 7 children (that’s almost half a footy team)!
