What is your favourite way to spend an off-day?
"Walk the dogs down the beach, then hit the surf. Then chill out watching some Netflix and go to the gym."
What is your favourite oval to play on and why?
"Deakin Uni, Geelong because it’s a larger oval that’s soft but firm."
What was it that motivated you to play footy?
"Honestly what motivated me the most was that it was a team game and the tackling and rough aspect of it."
How would you describe your own footballing journey?
"I didn’t even want to go to my local club training initially because I was so nervous, then ended up playing for the futures in the Geelong Falcons. Then after two years playing there I played for Vic Country which was an awesome experience. I would describe it as a new and exciting journey that has gone well so far."
What has been your favourite footballing experience and why?
"Favourite football experience is probably joining the Falcons and getting to form friendships and play with the girls we usually play against."
Who is your sporting/footy role model and why?
"Sporting role model would have to be Sara Sigmundsdóttir because she never gives up as-well as her mindset and attitude towards other competitors, and footy role model Mel Hickey because of her positive attitude and care for the game and people."
What would you say is your most favourite and least favourite thing about footy?
"My favourite thing about footy is the friendships and the group atmosphere and the least is probably the conditioning and running."
