I am passionate about the sport of Netball and have a wealth of netball knowledge that is based upon my experience as both a player at the highest level and as a coach. My coaching experiences have been mainly dealing with Junior development, which I feel is the area of my expertise. Whilst I enjoy coaching the elite, I spend more time working with kids of any skill level to develop their skills and reach their potential.

My current full-time job is the Director of Netball at Korowa Anglican Girls School where I look after 28 teams from Year 3 to Year 12.


I hold my intermediate coaching accreditation.

Certificate III & IV in Fitness
