She consequently presented her Master’s thesis findings at the International Festival of Sports, Exercise and Medicine Conference in September 2022.

She acted as the team doctor of the New Zealand Women’s Cricket Team during the inaugural U/19 Women’s ICC Cricket World Cup in January 2023. She also attended to Women's Cricket Science, Medicine and Leadership Conference held in February 2023.
