From pint-sized rollerbaby to fully-fledged rollin’ businesswoman, it’s been a fabulous life on skates for Rollergirl Promotions’ founder and managing director.
A four-wheeled force of nature since the age of four, what began as a cute mother-daughter skating trip for little Stacey became a life-long passion. Competing as an artistic skater at a state and national level as a child, a fascination with “the sensation and feeling of rolling” kept Stacey on skates well into adulthood.
A chance gig as a rollerskating waitress at Sydney club Purple Sneakers 7 years ago let to more promotion jobs on wheels, Stacey called on the cream of the skate community to help her out – and Rollergirl Promotions was born!
She took a short break from competing in Artistic skating before starting up the business, but has since competed again at a National level. Travelled to Spain for the International Roller Dance as well as Venice and Long Beach California and most recently Tokyo, where she learnt and brought back many new rhythm and dance skating skills and has travelled around Australia coaching Artistic and Dance skills.
In 2015 Stacey was announced on the International Moxi Skate Team to grow and inspire roller skaters around the world.
Stacey is also the founder of RollerFit – a fitness/skate program that has motivated so many to jump on their skates and get fit, it’s inspired its own nationwide program.

After attending her first class in 2012, you would be able to find her using any spare time on skates. Practicing the finer skills in her garage, out street skating Sydney city or travelling to any rink, or netball court, she was unable to sit still.
