Pauline is stepping up from her previous position as Referee Development Team Leader, and is bringing her experience as referee coordinator from the World Cup 2016 and the 2017 European Games. Pauline is looking forward to this new challenge: "I'm very motivated to start working with all the NGBs to see what the general needs cross-continents are," she said, "and how we can accommodate those while still working within the values of the IQA."

Currently she combines her position in the IQA with the development of her undergraduate thesis entitled "Quidditch Equipment Design" to facilitate access to quality equipment for teams around the world.
