Started skating: March 2010
Position: Outside pack ref
Favourite skate gear: New Reno boots. Like slippers but with ankle support.
Your derby hero/heroine: Miss Trial. Super awesome lady striving to further officiating and men’s derby.
Career highlight so far: Torn between OPR at World Cup and Crew Head at MEC 2015.
What’s the origin of your derby name?: Ska music and Barbarella. Can’t beat a good 70s sci-fi film!
Had any serious injuries: As many people know I have a bad knee. Worst was probably skating a half hour game with part of my knee cap dislocated. That didn’t end well.

One thing most people don’t know about me: I played a lute duet at the Royal Northern College of Music in front of a couple hundred people.
