Phoebe has become an ambassador for sports around the world, striving for greater inclusion and representation within the traditionally male-dominated game of American Football. After rising through the ranks of the British American Football Association (BAFA), she made the transition across the pond to coach the Buffalo Bills in 2017 as the first British female coach in the NFL. Since leaving the Bills, she now regularly works as an analyst for Sky Sports and Talksport in the UK.


Phoebe still finds time for the rising stars on the British scene, as she’s now the Chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee within BAFA, and has taken to the field for the Birmingham Lions many times and captained both contact and flag GB teams.
