WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO PARTNER WITH JOHN MADILL TOYOTA AND MADILL MOTOR GROUP:
My passion other than playing netball is also bringing sport to the community especially in regional areas where it is not as easy to get into the city. I believe every child no matter what their back ground is should have the same opportunities in sport no matter where they live. John Madill Toyota are very community focused and love to give back to the community in whatever way they can. Their support of community events and giving back to charity too is also what drew me John Madill and is something that I love to be involved with as well.
ANYTHING MORE TO TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
