Prior to Netball Victoria, I hadn't worked in sports. I worked for KODAK in the formula office for 5 years, K.G Luke in the badge office for 2 years and Preston Motors in deals & commissions for 5 years. 

I also worked for Pura Dairy in administration for 2 years, NEUROMED (spinal cord implants & TENS Machines) in administration for 8 years and
Franklins Ltd in administration for 5 years.

Prior to assuming my position as the Client Services Administrator at Netball Victoria, I worked in Member Services and Reception relief at Netball Victoria for 12 years.

I find working at NV has been quite inspiring, to see how each department can work as a team to get the job done, with whatever tasks it takes, for the health and wellbeing of participating individuals and all our communities. 

I enjoy communicating and meeting with people, whether it be communicating with staff, NV and MV members, our Associations and Leagues, or people in the general public.

It has definitely changed, as I have never worked from home in my 17 years at Netball Victoria.  I am adapting to a new way of working, by replying and forwarding emails from home, and there have been no phones to answer!

I've spent the occasional day in at the NV office, to process outgoing mail and have been working with our Heritage Group with some catalouging. This has become quite an interesting task, as it takes you back, well before my time at NV.
