Courtney Ugle is a proud Noongar woman from Bunbury in the South West of Western Australia. After losing both her parents in tragic circumstances as a young child, Ugle has used football to transform her life.

As a current player in the VFLW league playing for the Footscray Bulldogs, Ugle’s ability on the field is nearly outweighed by her strengths off it. Ugle quickly developed into one of the leaders within not only the Essendon team but as a spokesperson for domestic violence, resilience and overcoming adversity for people all over the country.

Courtney is a part time community worker for Djirra, an Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention Service - where she coordinates and delivers Young Luv, an early intervention and prevention workshop promoting healthy relationships for Aboriginal young girls / women.Ugle is an experienced keynote speaker, telling her story on a range of podcasts including Mamma Mia and The Vulnerability Run Series, The Point NITV, VOUGE, as well as speaking engagement events for corporate companies, schools and others.

Courtney Ugle was fantastic, she spoke well. She delivered her presentation with great enthusiasm and our students were transfixed on every word. She also closed her talk with a very positive message for our students and tied her talk to our theme for the day. I would gladly have Courtney back.

Without exception, Courtney was extraordinary and highly generous on the night of our show - both with the audience in the comments they gave while on stage, and with audience members after the show (eg. having conversations and posing for photos). We were delighted with Courtney, with her openness in conversation, and her ability to inspire. Ours was an International Women's Day event and we really did need women who could inspire, so we were not disappointed.
