About Me

Making my debut in 2006 at the Champions Trophy tournament in the Netherlands I have now become a regular member in the Hockeyroos side. Competing as the number one goalkeeper at both the 2010 World Cup and Commonwealth Games, I was fortunate enough to win a Gold medal with the girls after beating New Zealand in the Comm Games final in Strokes. After the set back of missing the 2012 London Olympics I went on to help the Hockeyroos to Silver at the 2014 World Cup where I was awarded Goal keeper of the tournament then Gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games where we won in penalties. 2014 was capped off with a nomination for International Goal keeper of the year. 2016 was the year of the Rio Olympics and I was fortunate enough to gain selection. A wonderful experience but we will have to wait another four years to chase that elusive Gold medal. Bring on Tokyo 2020
