Women in sport – oh, the things I’ve done
I was the managing editor of Zela, SBS’s website devoted to women in sport. I also managed the Facebook and Twitter accounts.
I was the content and community manager at sportforwomen.com.au and content and social strategist at thewomensgame.com. I produced content on sportswomen for Rebel Sport. Helped out Tameka Butt and Lauren Reynolds with media relations.
I am the founder and managing editor of Sporting Sheilas, a website I set ran from 2006-2016. It’s an ever-evolving project and I’m now focused on telling the stories of Aussie women in sport via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The Women’s Game: W-League Web Series
I produced, directed and filmed the pilot episode of a women’s football web series with former Australian international, Sarah Walsh.
I was also a board director of Women Sport Australia (WSA) and Womensport and Recreation NSW (WRNSW). They do good works.
Speaking engagements and panels
I love getting up and talking about women’s sport.
Speaking of events, sometimes I organise them. Like Celebrating the Spike in Women’s Sport for Volleyball Australia. with special guests Angela Pippos, Kerri Pottharst, Natalie Cook, MC Becchara Palmer and a slew of current elite sportswomen like Alex Blakwell, Sharni Williams, Anna Flanagan and Lisa Darmanin.
At Womensport NSW, I helped organise our Girls Get Active events. I’m particularly proud of the Bourke event. I was responsible for recruiting athletes to attend, generating media interest and producing videos and images.
Radio and podcasts
Too many to list here! I talk a lot about women in sport.
