Natalie’s favourite TV shows are True Blood and Dexter. Her favourite books are The Catcher in the Rye, The Picture of Doorian Gray and American Psycho. Natalie loves food and enjoys trying new restaurants; she has recently started drinking coffee and can’t get enough of her sister’s lattes at her family’s café in Lindfield. She loves the beach and is hoping to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Manly has to offer with her husband David.

Natalie is a championship player with the club and will bring a wealth of experience to the team. Her versatility allows her to play at multiple positions and we hope Nat will be a leader for the group as the season unfolds.
