Favourite Ultimate Memory: During a game? Playing with Foxx at a tournament two years ago, going airborne beside Tara McLeod doing the exact same thing for an amazing layout D!

Why did you start playing Ultimate? It was the only team sport I felt confident playing. Still is!

Who’s another PUL player you love to play with, and why? Kerri Kightley. She is a pleasure to play with – such a reliable player and such a positive personality.

Favourite tournament and why?: SunJam/Ecodisc. I love dressing up for tourneys, love biking to the tournament, and sleeping in my own bed!

What’s your “signature play” or throw? It’s probably signature if it

Still waiting to use my hotdog costume.
