Having a mini hockey stick given to me by my dad on the day I was born, it’s safe to say I was always going to be involved with the sport. Currently playing for YMCC in the Australian Premier League, I am striving to be the best player I can be; scoring a hat trick in my fifth game was certainly one of my favourite career moments.
Having won a silver medal at the Youth Olympics back in 2013 and been selected for the Senior Great Britain programme in the build up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, I unfortunately sustained multiple shoulder and hand injuries, forcing me to take time out from the sport. Three operations later and a whole year out from the sport, I started playing and coaching at Old Bordenians Hockey Club. This has been pivotal in helping me re-gain my confidence and strive to be the best.
The time out gave my body time to recover and allowed me to set up LEAP Hockey.
