What is your backstory/ Origin of derby name:
I’m a Scottish female, and I get a bit fiery sometimes.
Wearing a lot of pink. But hot pink. None of that pastel rubbish.
People, animals, outdoors, sunshine, hip hop. Rocks! I am a massive geology nerd. Oh and derby.
Haven’t decided yet. Probably blocking.
Favourite Quote/Personal Motto:
“Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
Who is your derby crush?
Basically anyone who can skate better than I can.
What gets you fired up on the track?
Wanting to do well and not let my team down.
Fell very hard on my butt when I first started skating and damaged my coccyx. Pulled groin muscle a couple of times.
I skated on and off on quads, in-lines, ice skates and even skateboards when I was younger. I started properly training on quads again in late 2014 and got into derby from there.
Tattooed or Cleanskin?
Tattooed. I have three. One on my wrist and two on my back. They all have a special meaning for me.
Nope – only a real life husband. He’s enough work thanks. (Not really Mike, you’re amazing.)
What does derby mean to you?
Fun and fitness, strength and confidence.
What’s one thing everyone should know about you?
I laugh at my own jokes. Sometimes before I finish telling them.
Red hair, freckles
Greatest derby moment:
Getting into LCD
Earliest roller skating memory:
My 10th birthday roller disco party at St Clair. It was amazing.
Basically a DIY fresh meat pack from Da Klinic. Riedell skates, Protec safety gear. All with as much pink incorporated as possible.
Dear Science – Seth Sentry. This track combines two of my loves (science and hiphop) in a perfectly funky concoction.
Torah Bright – Snowboarder. Mostly because of her infectious smile and the fact that she dances before and after her runs.
