Dave Sheridan grew up in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales and began playing rugby league at the age of five.
His career included contracts with the Parramatta Eels, Newcastle Knights and Tweed Heads Seagulls where he made his Intrust Super Cup debut at 19.
While playing, Sheridan worked in the support working industry and enjoyed his time assisting and improving the lives of the people he worked with every day. He also completed a psychological science degree whilst playing and working.
Following a serious neck injury, Sheridan made the decision to retire from the game and continued to strive to work in the wellbeing industry following his graduation. He has a unique blend of lived experience within rugby league and knowledge of wellbeing through his degree.
The former back is extremely passionate about using his knowledge and skills to work effectively in this space and specifically supporting remote and regional Queensland. These communities throughout the state are limited by both access to rugby league and wellbeing services.
Sheridan is passionate about developing on-field wellbeing activities and programs that use the greatest game of all as a tool to explain emotions and wellbeing.
