Why did you start roller derby?
I've always admired women who can challenge themselves physically and mentally. Roller derby does that in a way that I've never experienced before. The first time I watched the game I knew I wanted to be a part of that strong group of women who support and challenge each other. I stepped it up a year or two after I watched my first bout and went to recruitment. As soon as I got out on the rink I never looked back!
Favorite derby memory?
Traveling out of state with other new skaters for our first bout together was the most fun. We talked, laughed, and bonded the entire trip!!
Most embarrassing derby memory?
Hyperextending my elbow the practice before my first B-team bout. My elbow looked like I had a grapefruit in it!
My first bout was...
Probably a disaster...

Potatoes! Fix them any way, and I'll devour them!!
