First Appearance:August 2016
How did you get into Roller Derby?
I was looking for a hobby that would challenge me, and I showed up to a TCR recruitment session without knowing a soul. Had I known what a gratifying and empowering experience it would be, I would have started years ago. Skating with TCR has allowed me to make connections and become friends with so many remarkable people.
What is your most embarrassing roller derby memory?
When I literally got the snot knocked out of me.
What was your first bout like?
My first was a Hot Quads vs. Rollsheviks bout. It wasn't nearly as terrifying as I had expected, and it was strangely comforting to know all the people who were trying to hit me.
What are some of your other hobbies?
Practicing yoga, hiking, drinking coffee, playing with pups.
What 3 fictional characters best describe you?
Leslie Knope, Rory Gilmore, Kat Stratford
What charities or organization(s) are you involved with or support?
The Crisis Center, Inc. & WBHM
Where do you like to hang out in Birmingham when you are not skating?
Hiking at Ruffner Mountain or Red Mountain Park when it’s nice out; curled up on the couch with my 4 dogs and the fellow when it’s cold or rainy.
All of the coffee! And avocados. With a side of pizza.
