She's the reigning Dally M female player of the year, an NRLW premiership winner, a Queensland and Australian stalwart.
Yet St George Illawarra marquee signing Brittany Breayley has put her life on hold and is currently without work for two months after her shift to Wollongong.
The clever No.9 represents the biggest coup of an aggressive Dragons recruitment drive after coach Daniel Lacey coaxed her from premiers Brisbane for the second NRLW season.
Because female players haven't reached fulltime professional status - the NRLW is a four-team, four-week competition - they have to work elsewhere to make ends meet.
Monday to Friday Brealey is a maintenance scheduler with a transport company in Brisbane and had been told she would be able to work with their sister company in Wollongong while with the Dragons during the NRLW pre-season and season.
"Just as I was going to make the move, the Wednesday before, the owner said no I wasn't able to transfer," Breayley told AAP at the NRLW season launch on Tuesday.
"Unfortunately I'm stuck without work.
"But the wellbeing guys at the Dragons are trying to find me work. I'm a lady of leisure at the moment."
Brealey has been told she's able to return to her Brisbane job after the NRLW grand final in October, but she admits trying to fit both footy and work commitments is hard to balance.
While the women's game has made quantum leaps in the last 18 months, it highlights just how far there is to go.
Last year, then NSW captain Maddie Studdon revealed she had been forced to leave her job because her bosses couldn't accommodate her requests for time off for her sport.
Breayley said she was trying not to stress out and was concentrating on the Dragons' premiership tilt, which will kick off next weekend.
Breayley, Kimiora Nati, Maitua Feterika and Teuila Fotu-Moala have all shifted from the Broncos to the Red V.
She admitted it was hard to part ways with her former Broncos teammates, in particular skipper Ali Brigginshaw, who she had played alongside at Queensland and Australian level since 2014.
"Playing against those NSW girls, I wanted to find out what they have in them, they've been so successful the last three years," Breayley said of her decision to move clubs.
"Our Jillaroos coach (Brad Donald) told us that we should always challenge ourselves. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to move out of Brisbane.
"I just think the only things in life we regret are the things we say no to."
