From rural ambassador and charity queen to playing women’s football
SHEREE Jewess has represented her home town of Biggenden in such areas as Burnett Sub Chamber Rural Ambassador, Bundy Thunder Charity Queen and can now tick selected to represent Central Division in rugby league off her bucket list.
Sheree started playing rugby league in under 7s for Isis Devils Junior football club with the boys and then on and off throughout high school.
For the past five years Sheree has played in the women’s league competition and was able to be a part of three premierships and securing player of the 2014 grand final.
Sheree now plays for the Isis Devils women’s team. “I love it, it’s in my blood. “If you ask my husband he will tell you I live for it,” Mrs Jewess said.
Being brought up on the farm, the last of six kids and from a football orientated family Sheree was never going to be dainty lady.
Her father, brother and uncles played football.
Maybe Sheree will follow in the footsteps of her relation PJ Marsh and get her chance to wear the maroon jersey and represent this great state of Queensland. This dream is in reach if Sheree is selected at the state trials.
Being a working mother of two young boys and having a husband that works away Sheree juggles around her busy daily routine to fit in training when she can.
In her spare time she is Biggenden Touch Football Club president, helps out with Biggenden Little Athletics when able and is Biggenden P&C Association vice president.
When Sheree is not doing this volunteer work, she is fitting in some quality family time as they will always come first.
