First Appearance:January 2016
How did you get into Roller Derby?
I went to a bout and saw all these strong, athletic women skating around so confidently, and I decided I wanted that. I came up with my name and number while watching that bout in 2015.
What is you best roller derby memory?
The week before my first B team game with the rest of my recruitment class we found out that the "B team" we were playing was actually an A team that had their 2 best jammers and 2 best blockers taken out. We were terrified. On the way there, we saw a sign that said, "Might as well" so we adopted that as our slogan for the day. And forever after, actually.
What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?
Oh, they happen too often. I get embarrassed all the time. If you're not falling, you're not trying.
What was your first bout like?
We were at an away tournament (I can't even remember where because I was so nervous), and I spent the majority of it on the bench. I'm pretty sure I was just trying to stay upright and with another teammate the entire time. I just didn't want to majorly mess it up for my team.
What are some of your other hobbies?
Drinking all the coffee, reading, and watching tv on my couch

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Oprah, Bonnie Thunders

More about Killa:
"I follow a ton of strong women on the internet as inspiration to try and get stronger and better as a skater. This sport has made me more confident and inspired than anything else in my life. I don't know what I would do without it!"
