Roller derby! I play for Dundee Roller Derby and the national squad, Team Scotland Roller derby.
Last year we played in the fourth Women’s World Cup where we finished 13, our highest ranking yet. Next up, Scuba diving, I am a qualified Divemaster. I travel to Thailand when funds permit and spend my time diving and helping out with coral and Eco preservation. If I could do either of these every single day I would be the happiest person!
When I am not playing or coaching roller derby, I am involved in the men’s side of the sport. The last four years I have been a Sports Therapist to the Power of Scotland’s Men Roller, where I have, I travelled to three World Cups, July next year we are off to St Louis for our fourth.
