“I've never been a ‘sporty’ person, so it has taken some time for me to find forms of movement that I enjoy and these are always changing. Aside from netball, I enjoy walking with my husband and dog and discovering new places and spaces to do so - these are the best adventures. Physical activity for me is defined as an opportunity to laugh, have fun, and spend time with loved ones. The rest is a bonus.
Being active is the best and most effective form of downtime and self-care for me, but it can be a challenge to find the time. However, I know that if I am able to look after myself, I am able to be the best version of myself for others, and this motivates me to be active.”
Roxanna provides strategic leadership and capability building support to both Sport Waikato staff and the wider regional play, active recreation and sport sector with a focus on supporting organisations and groups to improve inclusion practices and support physical activity participation among diverse communities.
