BORN DECEMBER 29TH, 1977, in Adelaide Australia, she is the sister of Damian, a champion Australian goalie. She began ice hockey in the local South Australian league and represented her state as a defender in the national championships in the 1990s. In 1996, she was selected at 19 to the national All Star Second Line and in 1997 she was awarded Best Defence and selected to the All Star First Line.
She moved to New South Wales where she played for the Warringah Bombers, the Blacktown Brewers, and later the Canterbury Eagles (2007). In 1998, she won the Joan McKowen Trophy representing New South Wales, and she was again selected to the All Star Second Line. That same year, she was a member of the Australian Junior Women's Team that played several high school teams in Boston, USA. It was one of the first ever Australian women's teams to travel overseas.
In 2000 at Dunaujvaros and Szekesferhevar in Hungary, she skated onto the world stage coached by Kathy Berg in a qualification tournament held for the right to participate in Division I of the world championships. She was the top point scorer (2-2) and third in the tournament among defensemen scoring leaders. Australia lost all three matches, but beat South Africa in the game for seventh place, and was first overall for Fair Play with an average of six penalty minutes per game.
She represented Australia 3 more times at the IIHF Women’s Worlds — in 2001 at Dunaujvaros; in 2003 at Maribor, Slovenia, winning promotion to Division 2; and in 2004 at Vipiteno, Italy. A few years later, she married and had two children.
