Kerryn has had over 35 years of skating experience. Her first employment was at the Blackwood Recreation Centre as a skating instructor. She spent 30+ hours a week through her teens at the skate rink, and simply loves being on 8 wheels.
Later in life Roller Derby gained Kerryn's interest. In 2010 she tried out for Adelaide Roller Derby and was accepted onto the Wild Hearses team. Shortly after she fell pregnant, had her beautiful son Harry and decided to give Roller Derby up.
After leaving Roller Derby Kerryn had a big skating hole in her life. She knew she wanted to share her passion of skating with as many people as she could, so in 2012 she developed a recreational skating program for children and started by teaching one class a week. Personally she has tough taught thousands of people to roller skate and has grown Skatescool to teach in schools as part of PE, private lessons, aggressive skate lessons, skatercise classes, learn to skate lessons, skateboard lessons, skating parties, skate events, pop up roller rinks, plus e-commerce shop and a retail store.
Taking all of her experience and bit of a chance, she took over Better Bearings when the opportunity came up. Having been a keen supporter since the very beginning the opportunity to continue the good work, and stay close to the scene she loved could not be missed… the rest is recent history.
