Fiona Lamb is a footy fan and, as a Sydneysider, she is naturally a Giants AFLW supporter. Fiona is passionate about women’s football as a platform for empowering women and engaging the public in reducing violence against women. She is also shining a light on Sydney based talent - the SWAFL veterans who got Sydney women’s AFL to where it is today, present players in the AFLW comp, and those players who are the future of the game in Sydney. Fiona is a Registered Music Therapist and directs 2 a cappella choirs, and she works in a paediatric hospital in education support for junior medical staff. She is excited about AFLW Season 3 and hosting this podcast with 2 inspiring Sydney AFL women.
