Since the age of 18, Sharni has developed her media skills to become a polished media presenter. After completing a radio course with Australian Radio School in 2011, Sharni continued her work in the radio world with Mix 102.3 and had a weekly segment on the Triple M’s Rush Hour program in Adelaide. Sharni is also a regular TV presenter, often appearing on Fox Sports & Channel Nine where she has been able to provide her opinion on the rise of women’s sport and openly speaks her mind regarding all topical issues in sport.
Born in Mordialloc, Victoria, Sharni or otherwise known as Sharnz, is a dual ANZ Championship Premiership player and World Cup Champion and a Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist.
Sharni started playing netball at the age of five and her first ever game was with the Bonbeach Stingrays. She retired from a 14 year professional netball career having played 147 games at National level and over 40 games representing Australia at international level.
Still at the peak of her career and after achieving over a decade of international accolades including 46 Diamonds caps, in 2018, Sharni decided to challenge herself even further choosing to play AFLW for the Collingwood Football Club, in which she has now signed for her third season in the AFLW. When she joined the Collingwood Football Club in 2017, all she wanted was to win a premiership with the Mighty Pies and never in her wildest dreams did she image that would be playing footy for their VFLW side (in 2019). Sharni improved dramatically from her first to second AFLW season earning a spot in the 2019 All Australian Team.
