Why did you join roller derby?

I felt like something was missing in my life when in late 2013 I discovered a bunch of friendly pirates playing flat track roller derby not far from where I live. Little did I know that derby would become such a massive part of my life and I love it.

What are your derby goals/aspirations?

I want to be the best Captain I can for my beautiful team-mates, the Wayward Rollers, I would like to become a stronger jammer, and I’d also like to become a Certified WFTDA Referee.

Embarrassing derby moments?

When I first started derby I could not skate at all. I had no basic technique and literally ran around the track on my skates in my favourite part of training, speed. I remember in my first session not knowing how to stop and flying into several walls.
