How long have you been skating?
2 years, then a 27 year gap, then 6 months

Why did you get involved in roller derby?
It’s something I always wanted to have a go at since I watched it on TV in the seventies. It was amazing when a league started near enough for me to get to.

How often do you practice?
3 times a week on average, 6 hours altogether

What Pads do you use?
Still on anarchy but have my eye on 187s

What Helmet do you use?
I use a Pro Tech that I have customised myself. (That’s my thing)

What skates do you use?
Riedell R3 beginner skates. I have narrow feet and these have been a great start up set. I’m going to upgrade soon.

What were your first pair of skates?
I had a pair of Blue, red and yellow Dallas roller boots with blue wheels. I wore them all over the place.

Where did your nick name come from?
Heidi Jam Peroxide- Hydrogen Peroxide. My hair colour. My number is H202, the chemical formula for it.

What is your favourite part about being a Roller girl?
The inclusivity of it. Anyone is made to feel welcome and useful.

Any top tips for up and coming Derby Superstars?
Get yourself a customised helmet painted by me. It really does make a difference. Seriously though. Improve your fitness as well as your skate skills.
