She significantly raised the profile of women’s rugby through her leadership and now continues to inspire girls and women through her own company Inspiring Women. She is patron of global charity Tag Rugby Trust, and loyal to her Kent roots, as an ambassador of both Shepway Sports Trust and KM Charity team.
