Skating since: 2013
What made you get involved in roller derby? My daughter was watching Whip It one day and I thought, I can do that. It looked so bad ass. I googled local teams and emailed Rocktown before I could talk myself out of it.
How did you pick your name? The guys at worked helped me pick my name. HydraShok is a type of ammunition. My number (.40) is for 40 caliber. It was either HydraShok or Throat Punch. I had to explain that throat punches weren't allowed.
Favorite derby memory: Just being part of an awesome team.
Derby Mantra: "I can do it!" I have to keep repeating this to myself.
Likes: Sweet tea. My Kindle Fire. Spongebob Squarepants - I watch it on TV. I stream it. I have DVDs. -just about everyday. I know, it's weird.
Dislikes: Plaid. Soft drinks.Talking on the phone.
Pre bout rituals: Sweet tea and PowerBars - The fuel of people like me.
Real job: I work for the City of Staunton.
