Kia ora, I’m Katie!

Sport has been a massive highlight for me growing up and I have been playing/involved with cricket since I was 12.

I am now fortunate enough to put that passion into my job. I absolutely love the game and am really excited to get amongst the Yeah! Girl's program this season and to be able to help inspire young girls. 

Look forward to seeing you all at the Christchurch hubs!
