What’s the story behind your derby name?

Sadly no crazy funny story. One of the other girls thought it would be fitting given my job role. I will let you figure that one out 🙂 

How long have you been skating for?

Since April 2014.

What’s your favourite thing about Roller Derby?

Honestly, I didn’t know what it was about until I saw an ad and decided to Google it and give it a whirl. Best decision ever, I’ve met lovely people and made me competitive. Derby has taken over my life.

What team or skater do you most look up to?

London roller girls, been playing since 2006 ish and they are awesome and have some awesome moves going on. I wanna be like them one day.

What is your preferred derby position?

Blocker, not quite sure why, unless it’s because I get to boof Jammers out the way 🙂 

What’s been your worst/best injury so far?

I had a mahoosive bruise that covered most of my arm which was pretty cool. Always proud of my bruises. Thankfully no other injuries on the derby track, just bruised ribs when I first attempted skating on ramps.

What’s the best game you’ve ever watched?

I love watching all games but London Roller Girls are pretty awesome!

What would you say to anyone who was considering signing up for Fresh Meat?

Don’t believe you can’t do it, give it a go and you’ll be surprised at how quick you get hooked.
