Alternate Captain of Australia, 2015

BORN APRIL 8TH, 1987 in Melbourne, Australia, she was an active girl growing up, playing every sport she could, until the Mighty Ducks movies finally piqued an interest in hockey. She watched boys playing roller hockey in the park opposite every Saturday until her parents took her down and she was hooked. She started playing organized inline hockey at the age of 9, representing Australia for a couple of years before transitioning to ice hockey at 16 while attending The University High School in Melbourne. She played boys contact ice hockey with the Sharks and Blackhawks for as long as the Victorian league would allow, then made the transition into women's ice hockey around the age of 18.

A 163 cm (5’4”) forward, she first represented Australia in ice hockey at the 2004 IIHF Division 2 Worlds in Sterzing, Italy. She was 17 and returned with the National Women’s Team to the Division 3 Worlds in Cape Town South Africa in 2005. Later that year she relocated to Calgary in Canada to improve her game, with the Calgary Coyotes from the age of 18, then the Calgary Hurricanes. In the Autumn of 2008, she joined the Strathmore Rockies of the Western Women’s Hockey League, a franchise founded by player activist Samantha Holmes prior to the formation of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. There she competed alongside players such as Holmes, Delaney Collins, Bobbi-Jo Slusar and Kelsey Webster, all of whom represented Hockey Canada.

"I was fortunate enough not to just play for Samantha Holmes but to play with her” she told WomensHockeyLife.com. “She was definitely a large inspiration for me, her game sense is incredible. She always was patient and always willing to share her knowledge. It is incredible how much she has given to the sport both on and off the ice."

In March 2008, she returned to the Division 2 Worlds in Vierumaki Finland, where a winless Australia was again demoted. She also played with the SAIT Polytechnic Trojans women's team in the ACAC, then became the first Australian-born player selected in the history of the CWHL Draft. In 2011, she was picked by Team Alberta and was selected by the Calgary Inferno in the 2013 edition. Also from 2013, she graced the gridiron as a slotback with the Okotoks Lady Outlawz expansion franchise of the Western Women’s Canadian Football League.

Alternate Captain of Australia in 2015, she played a total of 40 senior games for her country in 8 world championships (2004, ’05, ’08, ’11, ’12, ’13, ’14, ’15). In 2017, she was a purchasing manager at Graf Canada Ltd and still with the Hurricanes in the SAWHA.
