What has been your highlight when skating with FVRG?

There are so many things! I love that I’m constantly learning and being challenged. Other highlights were being awarded Best Jammer at my very first scrim and being awarded MVP at my first game. A more recent highlight was coming back to skating just 6 weeks after having a baby. I worked my butt off to re-pass the WFTDA Mins and earned a place on the Parma Violents charter – and all before my son’s first birthday!

Who are your Derby Heroes?

Bonnie Thunders, Kamikaze Kitten and Mutch Mayhem,

What advice would you give to anyone interested in trying Roller Derby?

Do it! Do it now!

How do you spend your time outside of FVRG?

I’m mostly off having adventures with my wee boy and my husband, but I also play several musical instruments ranging from bass guitar to the fiddle. I like to go jogging. I also enjoy making things, so I do a bit of crochet, knitting and cross stitching. I also love a good film, and quite often I can be found with my nose in a good book!
