The midfielder began her career in Arsenal’s youth academy and made her debut for the Women’s Super League senior side back in 2017 before heading out to the US on a college scholarship with Florida Gators, the same team Deanne Rose played for, between 2019 and 2021.

She then made her return back to UK, signing for Bristol City for the 2021/22 season solidifying her position in the squad with 19 starts for the Robins. She then made the switch to Hibernian in the 2022/23 season, much like her time at Bristol and becoming a first team regular.

The signing further strengthens the Hibs link with Reading as former Royals boss Brian McDermott currently was appointed Director of Football in May of 2023. On the pitch, fan favourite and 2011/12 Championship title-winning Adam Le Fondre moved to the Scottish side after a stint in Sydney and Mumbai. He was joined soon after by Jordan Obita, who came through the Reading academy, having most recently made his mark at Wycombe Wanderers before heading to Hibernian.
