Meet Izzy, Izzy has been skating since 2012, involved in both roller derby and ramps. Playing for a junior league in Brisbane for 5 years, she had the opportunity to represent Australia at the first Junior Roller Derby World Cup in Seattle, Washington. While still being a junior, she attended Sun State Roller Girls’ scrimmages – both NSO’ing and benching – which furthered her knowledge of the sport.
From there, she transitioned to an adult league and played for Sun State Roller Derby, representing them at a few tournaments both nationally and internationally. She was also lucky to have the opportunity of coaching juniors in both Adelaide and Caloundra, and an adult league in Las Vegas during this period.
Ever since first dropping into a half pipe, she has fallen in love with everything there is to do with skating ramps. Izzy has been able to use the skills she has accumulated from 6 years of derby and apply them to this area of skating. She has taken a year off derby and now skates for the Chicks in Bowls Brisbane chapter, focusing on accomplishing more on the ramps. Showing enthusiasm and passion, she is willing to learn more each and every time she hits the skate park.
