About Woo:

How did you get into Roller Derby?

Watched “Whip It” and was intrigued. Googled local roller derby and saw Birmingham had a team. Showed up to recruitment a month later and the rest is history!

What is your favorite roller derby memory?

Passing minimums and finally getting my laps

What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?

When I first started derby, I literally stepped out on the track and just fell backwards and completely wiped out. It’s great when you fall for no good reason but your own awkwardness.

What was your first bout like?

Nerves. All the nerves. Then the whistle blew and I was proud that I didn’t foul out or knock myself out!

What are some of your other hobbies?

Wandering, kayaking, playing with my animals

Who are some of your personal heroes?

Me mom!
