How I started:
I started playing Cricket because my dad played at the county level, and my mum managed the cricket club so I spent my summers there doing summer camps with the boys. I got picked for the boys county U11’s team, and played with them up until U13’s when I joined Durham County.
My Greatest Achievement:
My greatest achievement is getting into the 100 competition, which was an exciting new competition to be involved in playing against some of the best players in the world. At this point in the women’s game it was just turning professional so this was a really exciting time as I had been playing for 20 years.
My Greatest Challenge:
My greatest challenge has been tackling depression and ADHD at the age of 32. This was a really tough time mentally whilst sustaining professional standards. However, the PCA were amazing in supporting me and getting me the right medication to help through this difficult time.
Outside of Cricket I enjoy travelling, which is exciting as I’ve always endeavoured to get a bit of travelling into any time off I get from sport. I like being creative and up-cycling furniture and eating great food!
My Future Aspirations:
In the future I am looking forward to potentially become an athlete mentor post career. Helping younger athletes by sharing my experiences and helping them progress in their sport.
