Alexandra Saundry web

Alexandra started at Loreto Toorak as a Year 7 student in 2005, where she quickly became involved in many of the School's sports offerings. In her final year at Loreto Toorak, she was chosen as a School Captain, as well as Captain of a variety of sports teams - something in which she took great pride. 

After graduating from Loreto Toorak, Alex studied Business at Deakin University, majoring in Sports Management. As a university student, Alex returned to Loreto Toorak in a variety of coaching roles within our Girls' Sport Victoria program and, after receiving her degree, was Head of Year 9 Rowing.

Alex later took up an internship with Connors Sports Management (CSM), an AFL Men's Talent agency, which lead to full-time work. Her five years at CSM gave her vast opportunities in the sporting industry, one of which was to play for Greater Western Sydney (GWS Giants) in the inaugural AFLW season. Upon retiring from football, Alex wanted to create an agency that existed for its players. In 2018, she founded More Than Management; through this agency, Alex represents some of the country's best female and gender-diverse sporting and media talent.
Among founding her own talent agency, her most significant achievements include seeing clients win the AFLW equivalent to a Brownlow medal, playing in a friendly match for the Matildas; flying to Costa Rica to watch four of her clients represent Australia at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup; securing international soccer deals in Norway and Sweden; and employing three staff members within her business.

Loreto Toorak empowered Alex and gave her the courage to understand that no barriers, including gender, should prevent anyone from striving for a better, more inclusive world.
