Meet Allyson Bird

How long at MUSC
My one-year anniversary was July 30.

What did you do before joing MUSC?
I worked as a newspaper reporter in Charleston and, before that, in Florida. I mostly covered courts and crime but also business and politics.

An American dingo named Bonnie and an African spur thigh tortoise named Otto

Unique talent
I play jammer on our local roller derby team, the Lowcountry Highrollers. My skater name is Green-Eyed Sniper.

Favorite quote
There’s no “sorry” in roller derby.

Greatest moment in your life
June 22, when the love of my life asked me to marry him on the edge of a cliff in the Blue Ridge Mountains

A must-have in the fridge
Arugula. I would seed my whole lawn with that stuff if I could.
