I am Otago born and raised, growing up in rural Central Otago. After studying Physical Education at Otago University I enjoyed a gap year travelling around the USA and Central America before finding myself as a Sports Event Manager in Rotorua. I moved across to start at Sport Waikato in May 2021 and am very excited to be part of the team!

While working in Rotorua I completed my Masters in Sport Management through Massey University – looking at various barriers in sport and physical activity that people have and how to help minimise these. I am a huge advocate for sport and physical activity and am looking forward to working with women and girls in this space.  
 
I like to keep active in my spare time and have tried my hand at a number of sports – still playing a bit of netball in the winter. In the summer you’ll find me at the lake or the beach getting my vitamin D!
