I currently have 78 International Caps for Scotland. I have competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the World Championships in 2015. I am the current Vice-Captain of the National Squad.
The biggest challenge I have has to overcome is two major injuries. I have had two operations on my right foot and ankle and both required lengthy rehab periods. Rehab required a lot of self-discipline and motivation to ensure I was patient in my rehab whilst maintain high levels of fitness using alternative training methods.
I want other people to know that if they work hard and believe in themselves that no matter who they are or where they come from then they can achieve success.
Extremely important. Sport and leadership bring so many positive attributes. It obviously bring you health benefits but also so much more. I have travelled the world meet some of my best friends through netball, grown in confidence and enjoyed being part of a team. The skills you develop from participating in sport are transferable to life and the experiences you gain are very influential.
You have to give it go. Initially you might not know anyone or have any experience playing the sport but that will soon change and it has the power to change your life if you let it. Ask around and get involved.
My mum had a big influence because she was my first netball coach at school and the local club before I started playing alongside her in the adult league. She was also the person that would get up in the morning and drive me to early morning swimming practices and competitions.
Nothing. The only other sport I wished I took part in when I was younger was Athletics but I took part in so many different sports I was always reminded that I never had any free time available to take part in that as well.
It’s a fantastic opportunity for you to try something new and get to know new people. It s on your doorstep so give it a go!
