The 25-year-old has 27 tries to show from her 40 Test appearances and hit the headlines during the World Cup with a two-try performance against USA in the group stages.
But while admitting falling at the final hurdle hit the squad hard Waterman is adamant the side will be back to their old selves in February.
"Losing out to New Zealand was obviously really disappointing," said Waterman - who is one of 21 elite athletes who are involved in the Sporting Champions scheme run by Sport England.
"But we have moved on from it now and have learned a lot from it and we will take that into the Six Nations and into our club rugby.
"We need to make sure we look forward now after the World Cup. I think if you consistently look back then it is bad for your game so I'll keep looking forward."
