Favourite Ultimate Memory: Ah! So many! The first game I was able to play after knee surgery. Nothing CRAZY happened, I was just able to PLAY again. 🙂

Favourite thing about Peterborough Ultimate League: The moves that this league is constantly making towards being more progressive & inclusive. 

Why did you start playing Ultimate? Two Words: Kerri Kightley 

Why do you still play Ultimate? Being able to play at all levels of competition with my friends & continuing to make new friends! 

What’s your “signature play” or throw? Shooter’s gotta shoot. 

What’s a skill you’re working on right now? Patience. Jumping. Upwind Hucks. Layouts. Kindness. The list is endless..

Favourite tournament and why?: Harvest. Why? Because it’s the best tournament of the year!

Weirdest thing you ever dressed up as for an ultimate tournament?: A cookie. 

What do you do other than play Frisbee (e.g. work, fun, family)?  I work at the Only Cafe & Providence. I have fun, occasionally, outside of playing Ultimate. I love donuts & cappuccinos. My family still don’t fully understand my obsession with Ultimate Frisbee… they’ll come around. 

Kerri Kightley is a quiet sort. But she’s been playing Ultimate since her youngest was 6 weeks old. With the amount of ultimate she’s played I’m sure she’s got some great memories. We thank her just the same.
