Member of Melbourne's first AFLW team and played every game for the first season, finishing second in the team's Best and Fairest and the league's best player award.

After missing most of the Round 1, 2018 game with a back injury, Paxman returned to play the rest of the season and was one her side's best. She was again one of the team's star players in 2019, playing every game for the third consecutive year and again being named an All Australian player.

At the end of the season she signed a two year extension with the Demons, turning back interest from expansion side St Kilda. She was a standout best player for her side in 2020, one of only two players, along with Elise O'Dea to play every game of the club's first four seasons. She was again named All Australian at the end of the season.

Paxman was All Australian for the fifth time in 2021, maintaining her record as the only Melbourne player to appear in every AFLW game, and running third in the league's Best and Fairest. In 2022 she missed All Australian honours for the first time, but again played every game, becoming the first AFLW player to reach 50 games with the Demons. Paxman remained one of the side's key midfielders the next season, playing in the club's inaugural premiership.
