Gorier was nominated by Daniel O., who described her as “an outstanding individual in the European officiating community”. She is an independent NSO based in the UK! Gorier has officiated more than 300 bouts in 10 European countries since she started in 2014. She has worked many high profile events, such as FINvitational, European Continental Cup, Men's European Cup and the MRDA Championships in 2017, the 2018 Roller Derby World Cup in Manchester, as well as GTO for the 2018 Men's Roller Derby World Cup.

This weekend she made her US debut as an official at the WFTDA recognized Lobstah Roll tournament in Boston.

Daniel also had this to say, “Gorier is a true pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable and professional. She has a gift for instilling confidence and imparting knowledge to new officials that is second to none, and always makes sure everyone feels safe and taken care of.“

If you know Gorier IRL, give her a high-five or a shoutout! <3
