Bio:

I played my debut for the Hockeyroos in 2004 and have been part of the national squad since.

I have played 189 games for Australia and have loved every minute of it.  I was part of the Silver medal winning team at the 2006 World Cup and played at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games & also at London 2012 Olympic Games.  I have had some major injuries over the years including three anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions... It has been a tough road with injuries, but they have also made me more determined than ever to achieve.
