A late bloomer into rowing, Georgina at age 25 competed in her first rowing tournament, racing for New South Wales in the women's eight where she finished second in the 2018 Queen's Cup. 

Later that same year, Georgina was selected make her international debut for Australia in the women's eight at the World Rowing Cup II in Austria, coming away with a bronze medal. A month later at the World Rowing Cup III, Georgina finished fifth.

Going into her second year of international rowing in 2019, Georgina had breakout performances as part of the Australia women's eight squad, coming away with a gold medal in the World Rowing Cup II and silver medals at both the World Rowing Cup III and World Rowing Championships.
