QLD Firebirds Netball and Australian Diamonds Player
Caitlyn Nevins is a long-standing Ambassador at Westpoint Autos, first linking up with us in 2016 while she was playing for the Queensland Firebirds as WA or C.
The Firebirds flyer made her national debut with the Australian Fast5 side in October 2016, which was followed by her first Diamonds caps during the Quad Series Tour of England in early 2017.
Being quick on her feet has worked well for Nevins who is also a fully qualified podiatrist and has now settled down in life with husband Sam and her beloved border collie in Brisbane.
After recently retiring from netball due to an injury, Caitlyn is now focusing on coaching/ mentoring young players along with her podiatry.

Greatest Achievement/ Proudest Moment?
My proudest moment was representing Australia for netball. Standing arm in arm singing the national anthem with my team mates was spine tingling.

Pineapple on pizza. Yes or No?
On a Hawaiian pizza Yes!
What's your favourite car to drive and why?
Nissan Qashqai Ti – I love the size – it is a small SUV with plenty of boot space. It is really smooth to drive and has so many safety features.
What was your first car?
My first car was a Hyundai Excel 3 door hatch back. It still has a soft spot in my heart. Perfect car for city driving and getting into tight parks.
If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join and why?
I would love to join Taylor Swift. I have grown up with her music and appreciate the messages she communicates through her songs.
If you could drive anywhere tomorrow, where would you go and why?
Rainbow Beach – 4WD on beach just before sunset is picturesque.
What motivates you to work hard?
I motivated to work hard for my dreams. The passion and love for what I do allows me to overcome adversity along the way.
What's your favourite movie and why?
Remember the Titans is my all time favourite movie – It is an inspirational story about a team rising above society cultural barriers to work together and achieve success.
What's one fun fact about you?
A hobby of mine is wood work – I recently built a 10-12 seater outdoor table.
