Sheridan Verwey is a sports fanatic whose greatest sporting love is AFL. As a first-generation Collingwood fan, she is eternally grateful to the parents of primary school friends who enabled her to experience the inner sanctum of Victoria Park. This sparked a real love for the game, and Sheridan now enjoys taking her own four young children along to matches. She is thankful there are no other AFL teams supported in her household (to date!).
Sheridan is passionate about making AFL accessible and affordable to fans of all ages and ensuring gambling advertising does not negatively impact anyone's enjoyment of the game.
Professionally, her career has focused on governance, risk, and change management roles. After a long career in banking, Sheridan is finding it much more rewarding working for not-for-profit organisations. She is also involved in the community service and early childhood sectors and is a netball coach
