By age 22, she had already been part of the team to secure the historic SACA vote for the redevelopment of Adelaide Oval. She contributed to the Adelaide Strikers' brand development, was part of the media team during two West End Redbacks premierships. She was then appointed as the third employee at the newly developed Adelaide Oval, implementing marketing strategies under the CEO.
