The youngest ever netballer to play more than 100 games for Melbourne Phoenix and one of the youngest to debut for the Australian Netball Diamonds at 18, Bianca's passion and dedication has seen her become one of Australia's most successful netballers and a highly valued and respected role model for the sport.
Bianca is the captain of the Melbourne Vixens and a vital ingredient in their intimidating world-class defensive lineup, as evidenced by her skills displayed in their premiership win in 2009 and 2014, as well as throughout season 2011 when she awarded as the Most Valuable Player.
Prior to playing with the Vixens, Bianca spent 10 years at the Melbourne Phoenix and enjoyed success at the club winning four Premierships. She has been an Australian national squad member for the past 11 years and has represented Australia in 42 international tests, including at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games where she won a Silver medal and a Gold medal at the 2007 World Netball Championships.
Through her work as a secondary teacher, in education at Essendon Football club and her leadership roles within netball, Bianca has developed strong views on leadership and personal development. Her strength, resilience and willingness to learn and grow gain her a wide respect from both within netball and the wider community.
Together with Sharelle McMahon, Bianca has developed Pivot Performance to pursue her passion for personal development in life outside of sport.
With a deep understanding and unique skill set in teamwork, personal development and leadership, as well as experience in performing under high pressure over a long period of time, Sharelle and Bianca understand the importance of a strong team culture in achieving success and are now challenging other groups to create an environment where everyone embraces the values of the team and individuals are encouraged to grow and voice their own ideas.
