Barossa Wellness


A bit about myself: This is my fourth season with Central District and my fifth year playing football after making the transition from netball, a sport I played for 30 years. Since making the transition to footy, I haven’t looked back. I love the competitiveness of the game, the athleticism required (especially to cover the Central’s oval), but more than anything I love the camaraderie on the field and amongst the playing group!

My favourite position to play is half-back; I enjoy being able to see the game unfold. I’ve been fortunate to play in winning premiership teams in both netball and football over the years and have always lived an active life. Growing up life generally revolved around being active and playing sport – netball and tennis mainly.
