Kirsty was an avid rugby fan from a young age, having been a season ticket holder at Wasps RC for more than 10 years, as well as watching her father play local Club Rugby in Oxford, England. This lead to volunteering at a number of local Clubs, where for over a decade she would help with ticket and merchandise sales as well as hospitality work on game days.
While traveling in Australia in 2013, Kirsty found herself as the Team Manager for the World University Barbarians touring squad to face SUFC in their 150th Anniversary celebrations. Following this role Kirsty was offered a 6 month full-time position with SUFC as Events and Marketing Manager.
In January 2017, Kirsty returned to ‘the Birthplace’ and again took up the role of Events and Marketing Manager at SUFC.
Kirsty has volunteered at several high profile sporting events in a number of different roles including the 2015 Rugby World Cup, The Varsity Match, Sydney 7s and the AON Uni 7s.
Away from Rugby, Kirsty has plenty of experience in event management from her previous role as Partnership and Engagement Coordinator for the National Health Service. She also brings a wealth of knowledge from the marketing industry with a Bacholer of Arts Degree in Graphic Design and previous employment with a PR company in the UK.
