Personal Interests:

Ione has always loved exercise and the outdoors. As a junior athlete she enjoyed soccer, softball, tennis, futsal, athletics, and cross country. Hockey has been her great love, having been a Premier League player in Perth and representing her home state, Tasmania at all junior levels. Her sporting involvement has been not only as an athlete; but as a coach, official and team doctor. These days Ione spends her spare time at the beach, on the trails or riding her bike.

She is a strong believer in the impact of exercise on an individual’s physical and mental health; and is therefore passionate about keeping people active, regardless of age or ability.
