What do you do for work and what do you love most about your job?

I work at a local primary school in the office and as an integration aide. I love the people I work with and I love the kids!

How long have you been a Demons supporter for and what do you love most about the club?

I have been a Melbourne member for 21 years now. My 15 year old son Mason has been a member since the day he was born – went to his first game at six weeks old. We love going to the footy and go to most home games – we even did a road trip to Canberra earlier this year to see them play! I love that our whole family barrack for the Dees (other than my Richmond supporting husband!)

Who is your favourite footy player and why?

I love all of the Melbourne players but Bayley Fritsch is my favourite. I have always loved the way he plays and kicking six goals in a Grand Final was amazing!! Not sure I love his haircut though lol.

What do you love most about the Tynong community?

Tynong is such a friendly little country town – very peaceful place to live. We’ve been here nearly nine years.

What’s something people don’t know about you?

I’m getting a Demons tattoo to commemorate the win even though I’m scared of needles (it will be small!!)

What would your last meal be?

Hot chips with gravy.

If you had to pick five people to invite to a dinner party (dead or alive), who would you pick and why?

My Dad, Princess Diana, Paul Roos, Bayley Fritsch and Max Gawn. I miss my Dad and I’ve always loved Princess Diana. I would like to thank Paul Roos for saving our club and I’d just want to talk footy with Bayley and Max.

What was your favourite part of the AFL grand final on the weekend?

The last minute of the third quarter when we scored three quick goals was amazing – so exciting to watch us come back in the game. I loved seeing how happy they all were too.

What are you watching/ reading at the moment?

Grand Final replay ……again…..and again…..
