How long have you been involved with Roller Derby?
Since 2006, minus an almost-3-year hiatus from 2010-2013.
What is your pre-derby skating or athletic background?
I played little league softball. In high school I played soccer and softball, and was captain of the swim team.
How has roller derby changed your life?
I met my best friend at roller derby in 2013, and she later became my wife – so that was pretty life-changing.
Tell us about your lucky/favorite item of gear or workout wear?
I used to have a lucky pair of fishnets. One of my teammates decided they were “too beat up” and threw them out post-bout on a road trip against Jacksonville at the end of 2008. The following month I separated the AC joint in my shoulder at Seasons Beatings in Virginia, which put me in a sling and out of action for a few months. I’ve not let myself get attached to any gear since that happened.
What song pumps you up?
I can’t pick just one – I have a whole playlist!
