Skating since: May 2009
What made you get involved in roller derby?I moved from VA Beach and didn't know anybody. I worked at Starbucks and a customer asked if I skated. I told her 'not really'. she suggested i should come to practice with her and she plays roller derby. I didn't have anything better to do so I went.
How did you pick your name? I am one of those lame skaters who actually skates by her real name. I'm just not creative enough to think of a cool derby name.
Favorite derby memory: In 2011, we played Charlottesville and were down. It came down to the last jam. We forced a track cut on their jammer and we managed to win the game. I got hurt in the second half. However, I wasn't going to miss our victory lap. I hopped all the way around the track and people started chanting my name. It was pretty awesome.
Derby Mantra: 'Shut up and Skate'
Likes: Dogs, cake, food, voting, your mom, pasta, coffee, fall, camping, hiking, food, the mountains.
Dislikes: cats, spicy food, people who try to hug me that I don't know, people who are assholes for no reason, people who don't like roller derby, hunting for sport, congress, summer, and the beach.
Pre bout rituals: I pee, ALOT.
Real job: Full-time student, student assistant to the Director of my college's career development department.
