How did you get into Roller Derby?
I was spoiled in college by being on a team. So I wanted that again. Being on a team brings a fun way to stay healthy, competitiveness and a group of people you can always count on. Your best friends even. I'm once again spoiled. I tell anyone I meet to give derby a try because it is so rewarding. Some of our best players were never athletes or had ever skated so no excuses!
What is your best roller derby memory?
Great memories are created every time we hit the track. Corny but true. Playing Norway with my team was amazing though. Closest feeling I'll ever get to being in the Olympics. I've also traveled overseas for fun, practiced and stayed with with other derby girls.
What are some of your other hobbies?
TRAVEL! If I haven't been there, it's on my list.
What charities or organization(s) are you involved with or support?
Girls Rock Birmingham, Magic City Acceptance Center
Where do you like to hang out in Birmingham when you are not skating?
Railroad Park is a favorite spot because it's a free place for people to gather and play. Aaaand it's skatable.
Hamilton, Wicked, most broadway musicals rock!
