Pitman has had anything but your typical career. Her longest stint with a netball club was from 2011-2013, playing with the Queensland Firebirds who won an undefeated ANZ Championship season in 2011. Otherwise she has played for 6 clubs across 3 countries, a fact that she owns, proud of her sense of adventure.
Within her first year of playing for a National Team she went through an ACL injury that put her out for the 2010 season. However, something had been seen in her and she was signed to the Firebirds for 2011, the same year that she played for the Diamonds in the Netball World Cup, taking the title. In 2012 she played for the Diamonds again, this time in the Quad Series.
Her style as a wing is similarly untypical, relying on an ability to find space more than speed or agility. It seems to be a style that works though, with Pitman receiving the 2017 Thunderbirds Club Champion award before joining the English Roses in 2018 and winning Gold at the Commonwealth Games.
