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.

Injuries:

Fell very hard on my butt when I first started skating and damaged my coccyx. Pulled groin muscle a couple of times.

Skating since:

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.

Derby wife?

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.

I laugh at my own jokes. Sometimes before I finish telling them.

Getting into LCD

Earliest roller skating memory:

My 10th birthday roller disco party at St Clair. It was amazing.

Gear profile:

Basically a DIY fresh meat pack from Da Klinic. Riedell skates, Protec safety gear. All with as much pink incorporated as possible.

Theme tune:

Dear Science – Seth Sentry. This track combines two of my loves (science and hiphop) in a perfectly funky concoction.

Sporting hero:

Torah Bright – Snowboarder. Mostly because of her infectious smile and the fact that she dances before and after her runs.
