Do you have a Roller Derby Name?
What is your alter ego? (i.e. what do you do when you aren’t on the track)
I am a monkey pilot trainer (and a liar)
Who are your favourite team?
As a ref I’m impartial! That said, I’m originally from Hull, so have a soft spot for HARD, but my overall favourite team has to be Hellfire Harlots, of course!
What would be your ideal bout to ref (which teams and where)?
Location would be NY, so for that reason I’ll go for Gotham Girls Vs Windy City (as I’d quite like to ref a return bout in Chicago, too)
What is your derby dream?
To be better at roller skating than my competitive OAP mother
What’s your poison?
All of the booze! Wine, spirits… whatever you are buying, thank you
What’s your proudest derby moment so far?
Reffing my first open bout and not falling over!
Do you have any other hobbies besides roller derby? I am a ferocious knitter. Seriously: ferocious! I might read a bit, too. I am a little bit obsessed with Canada, so also like kayaking, hiking, snow-shoeing, dog-sledding, cross-country skiing and I love watching ice hockey (Go Panthers!)
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why? Invisibility; just to get away from it all. Or the power to control all monkeys, so they would do my bidding and generally hang out at my house
What is the most embarrassing thing that has even happened to you? As a child, I got my knee stuck in the railing at the tower of London; my head stuck in a monkey cut-out at Flamingo Land, and my hand stuck down the back of a radiator. I was also slapped round the face with a large fish in front of a cheering crowd whilst watching sea lions being fed at a zoo. As an adult, I continue to embarrass myself on an almost daily basis
