Biography

Filled with a passion for hockey at aged four, she joined her local hockey club. She grew up idolising Hockeyroos captain Madonna Blyth and says she never dreamt that one day she would be playing on the same team as her vastly experienced fellow Queenslander.

Accident-prone Dwyer [not related to Kookaburras’ forward Jamie] has the tendency to run into stationary objects around hockey and the home. Married in December 2013, Dwyer says she’d love to relive it all again.

Like all of her teammates Dwyer has her sights set firmly on winning a medal at the Olympic Games in Rio. As she chases her goal, she has deferred her studies in Clinical Exercise Physiology.
