How did you get into Roller Derby?
When I moved to Birmingham I thought it would be a great way to meet people and stay in shape. It has since been all of that and so much more! I went out for recruitment in January 2016 and the rest is history!
What is your best roller derby memory?
The first B-team game of the 2017 season against the Druid City Dames (in their first ever game as a league!) comes to mind. The score was very close the entire game. Both teams played so well but we came out on top by only three points. Many of my family and friends came to watch from out of town so that made it so much sweeter.
What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?
I don’t know about a memory but I can always look upon my face in every “in action” bout photo ever taken of me if I want to feel embarrassed :P
What was your first bout like?
A sweaty, exciting, painful blur
What are some of your other hobbies?
Playing with Carl (my cat!), chasing my husband around on his skateboard, reading, running, hiking, camping, kayaking, most outdoor things…you get the idea
