Whips A Doozie #67
Where does your derby name come from?
The name kind of choose me. I started my derby career as a Ref. My derby name as a ref was "Do Azisay" . This got quickly shortened by my team to Dooz which then morphed to Doozie and then again morphed to “Whips a Doozie” when I decided to give playing a go. Derby chooses you including your name!
What year did you start playing?
This is my 6th year of playing or refing derby… it’s in my blood now!
Favourite derby position and why?
I love being a blocker… although every now and again I jam in a moment of weakness which quickly reminds me again why I love to block. My strength, stability and agility on skates is why I block.. I’m also really annoying to jammers
Any other sport experience?
Where to I start… I love my skiing ( the snow type), scuba diving (wreck diving is my fav), running, walking/hiking… eek I just noticed these are all solitary sports. Another yeah to derby team love !!!! Game Day Ritual?
I don’t really have one…I grab my skates, turn up and love every second I’m there.
What do you do in real life?
During the day I work as a Chemical/Environmental Engineer and manager, when I get home I look after a couple of kids and on the weekend I skate to live! You know it’s the old ..work, love, skate, repeat!
If you where a city, which city would you be and why?
I think I’d be “New York” as its busy and bright, robust, multicultural, friendly and has some of the best skating rinks I’ve ever skated on… oh and the shopping was amazing too (opps… that wasn’t one of the questions). #rollerderby #derby #rrdl #rockabellas #skater #derbychick #skatergirl #rollerderbychick #derbygirl #rollerskater #derbylife #rollerderbyforlife #skates #icanskate #gawlercrew #blocker #skaterslife #derbylife #player #playerprofile #blocker #pivot #jammer #alternatejammer #coedderby #coedrollerderby #whipsadoozie #toxiccherries
