Her first major role was as the co-host of the AFL Footy Show, before joining Australian Ninja Warrior in 2017.

The Melbourne-born beauty’s career continued to go from strength to strength in the following years, as she was chosen to host Nine’s tennis coverage in 2018 before becoming the Weekend Today co-host in 2019.

She welcomed her first child, a daughter named Ruby in 2018, and has been open about her joy of setting a good example for the youngster as a working mum.
