Mica has established herself as a leading female driver with GB Bobsleigh having joined the programme in 2010 after former World Champion Nicola Minichiello visited her school looking for athletes to compete at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2012. The former County Durham netballer and hockey player duly competed at the Youth Olympics in Igls, winning a silver medal alongside now Commonwealth long jump Siver medalist Jazmin Sawyers.

Mica went on to taste North American Cup success when she won gold in Calgary in 2012 and she picked up four NAC medals in as many races in 2016/17 with three silvers and a bronze.

She recorded three top ten World Cup finishes to her name in 2016/17 and enjoyed a double success in January 2017 when she won World Junior Championship gold with Mica Moore in Winterberg two days after claiming Europa Cup glory with Montell Douglas.

Mica finished 16th at her third World Championships in 2017, having placed 12th and 14th in 2016 and 2015 respectively after winning bronze in the Junior Worlds in 2013.
