Best on ground in the first women's match played against the Western Bulldogs. Played in 2013 - 2016 exhibition games for Melbourne before being named as one of the two marquee players for the 2017 AFL Women's competition.
Member of Melbourne's first AFLW team, played every game for the season and won the inaugural Best and Fairest award. Returned in 2018 to again play every game, then sat out the 2019 season while pregnant.
Returned in 2020, playing a new role as a running defender and appeared in every game for the season. In mid-2021 she was sent forward, playing a key role in her side's run to the finals before a knee injury in the last home and away game kept her out of the finals. She returned to play every game in 2022, reprising her role as a forward but dropping into defence when a steady hand was required. In Round 9 Pearce broke the club record for goals in a game with five. She captained the Demons to their first Grand Final and won her third Best and Fairest.
Between the two seasons played in 2022, Pearce signed with Geelong to take up a future coaching role. She returned to captain the side for the spring season, leading her side to its maiden AFLW premiership.
