Rebecca Roe (née Creer) says people from School would probably remember her as the short, energetic kid who had lots of sibling pride to live up to.
“I loved drama, dancing and having fun but was also lucky enough to have my family smarts and get through the serious work ok,” she said.
Rebecca has always been an active person, and now she dedicates much of her energy into her role as Sports Presentation Manager for the Global Rapid Rugby – a new international rugby league.
After graduating from Duncraig in 2000, Rebecca did a Commerce Degree majoring in Sales and Marketing.
While working full-time after completing University as Marketing Coordinator for The Carine, she was approached to apply for a role as Event Coordinator for the West Coast Eagles (WCE) – known to the organisation after undertaking work experience during her study.
“I was successful in my application and then continued to work as Events Manager at WCE for 13 years. My role was to deliver and manage all of the match day presentation and entertainment for WCE home games as well as manage all events for the organisation internally and externally,” Rebecca said.
“Being part of the West Coast Eagles throughout such a successful period in their history was amazing to be a part of – I was lucky enough to start in 2006, in a premiership year and finish after their next cup in 2018.”
Rebecca was also involved in the transition from Subiaco Oval to Optus Stadium and how to deliver a new match day experience for fans and the team.
“I am now lucky enough to be delivering match day all over the world, and taking Rugby into regions that love the sport”, which have so far included places like Fiji, Samoa and Japan.
Rebecca has a seven-year-old daughter and now lives in Woodlands – not too far from her old stomping ground.
She has turned her love for dancing into a love for fitness and now also teaches Jungle Body classes.
“I love me weekly classes where we get to workout, sweat, smile and shake our thing!” she said.
Reflecting on her time at St Stephen’s School, Rebecca said being part of the St Stephen’s community was a supportive and encouraging time.
“The teachers were wonderful and I loved the community we had built through our friends and families.”
“Working with people at School for projects is always a helpful tool for when you enter the big world and deal with everyone and everyone.”
