A former Australian netball representative, Noeleen has since held senior management positions across a range of sports and sporting events, including netball and the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. She sets an outstanding example for women across the nation and beyond, as a successful leader, representing her state and country both on and off the court. Noeleen's commitment to mentoring and supporting young women to thrive in Australia's sporting sector is a result of her strong belief in the need for young women to be given the same opportunities as their male counterparts—to be their best and achieve every success on the Australian and international sporting stages.
Throughout her career, Noeleen's achievements and contributions have changed the destiny of Australia's highest female-participant sport. Netball is now well-regarded at local, national and international levels, with Australia sharing its expertise, knowledge and resources worldwide.
Noeleen is respected within the sector for her honesty, integrity and transparency, and her contribution has led to significant cultural change in netball.
In 2006 Noeleen was elected President and Chair of Netball Australia. During this period she has been instrumental in leading governance reform in netball, establishing the Netball Australia Nomination and Remuneration Committee. Her vision and commitment to reform has also played a major role in the establishment of the successful ANZ Championship, which continues to build momentum as the world's best netball league.
