Role Model: Sharelle McMahon. She is described as probably the most athletic player of natural talent the game has ever seen. One of the great exemplars of the white line fever phenomenon: her fiery-eyed on-court competitiveness is counter-balanced by admirable grace and composure. A true example that success is not determined by where you come from, but by the size of your heart, skill and determination.

Importance of the EADP for you: The sport has changed so much over the last couple of year and with the ever growing physical demands on athletes, the training you do off the netball court is at times more important than what you do on court. The EADP program has helped my physical and mental preparations to improve my netball performance.
Favourite Drink: Sprite Zero
