Coaching Bio

I am a current defender for the Collingwood Magpies. I made my debut for the Australian Diamonds in 2013. I love coaching as it gives me the opportunity to assist in the development of players both on and off the court.

I began my career by getting a call up for the Queensland Firebirds in 2011. I have now played 8 seasons in the Super Netball League and currently play for the Collingwood Magpies. I debuted for the Australian Diamonds in 2013 and my career highlight was the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. As a coach, I love helping to grow athletes' basic skills as well as helping them improve their mindset to assist them in becoming more confident in their ability. I am a specialist in defensive skills, helping with body work, footwork, fitness and one on one play. Most of all I want players to have fun playing a game that has given me so much. I have also done a lot of mentoring with junior athletes. The main thing that interests me is assisting players and children to challenge what they think they are capable off. Something that has benefitted my career and helped me better myself as a player is goal setting, and this is something I want to pass on to junior athletes. My main goal is instilling values in players, being a great team mate and getting the best out of yourself and others.
