Ilijana is Canadian born and raised on ice hockey but has adopted rugby as her favourite sport. She is currently completing a Master of Law at the University of Bristol and hopes to become a solicitor, specialising in sports law (specifically rugby, of course!)
Ilijana and some friends developed the girls rugby team at her school, from an instructional team to a varsity team by their final year.
“I love being part of the rugby culture. My goal is to make a difference in the world through the language of sport and improve my coaching skills while part of the 2017 Pride.”
