Why you love being part of the South Coast Blaze
I have been fortunate to have had some great coaches throughout my playing career, from the start all the way through to Nationals, and to be able to give back and develop the younger players skills and techniques to improve their game, which continually improves the game overall. Seeing young players proceed through the Talent Identification Program, increasing their fitness, improving their skills and setting their focus by the time they complete the program.

Your advice for younger athletes who would like to play for the Blaze / representative netball one day?
Focus, work hard and set goals/targets, reach them and set more.

Fun Facts

Something people might not know about you
I played 2 Superleague Grand Finals (mens and mixed) with 4 fractures in my leg.

Your favourite sporting hero and why
Not a particular person, but a team – Melbourne Storm (NRL). Their playmaking as a team, rather than having individual stand outs, is something every team could learn from.
