What does life look for you now?

I am a passionate and experienced A Licence football coach and secondary school teacher. Over the past 26 years I have had the privilege of making a key and enduring contribution to a variety of football environments and secondary schools in Australia. This has been supported by my positive and professional attributes as both a team player and leader and the advanced coaching and teaching pedagogy I have developed. This pedagogy has been defined by my growth mindset and aptitude for inspiring footballers and students of all ages to be the best individuals and team players that they can be. My grounding and success coaching in junior club, college and state academy environments has greatly influenced my success as a Head Coach with First Grade NPLW Teams.

Fundamentally, I have developed a reputation for being highly-skilled in leading the evolution of fantastic team culture and a distinctly progressive and possession-based style of play within senior squads and performance-based female football programs. My success leading the creation of team culture at First Grade NPLW has also contributed to being invited to be a panelist at State Coaching Conventions and in becoming a highly-valued member of Capital Football’s Technical Committee. I have been a strong advocate for women's and girl's football since my playing days.
