Jemma Barsby joins as MS ambassador
MS Queensland is excited to have Jemma Barsby join MS Queensland as an ambassador to help raise awareness of multiple sclerosis, and to show the community that she refuses to let MS derail her cricketing dreams.
Jemma Barsby is a hugely talented all-rounder who has impressed many during her time at the elite level, despite her young age. Jemma made her Women’s National Cricket League debut for Queensland in the 2010-11 season at the age of 15. Jemma plays for Queensland Fire and for the Women’s Big Bash League team Brisbane Heat.
Jemma was diagnosed with MS at the age of 19 years old, after she had started her professional career as a cricketer. Jemma is fortunate to be able to continue to do what she loves doing, and has the support of her coach and team mates around her.
Tune in to see Jemma in action as the WBBL competition is underway, where she will be wielding the willow with our MS Queensland sticker on her bat.
