Why did you start roller derby?
Hmm, good question. I had recently moved to Birmingham and needed to make some friends and find a way to stay active. Prior to derby, I mostly just worked every day and hung out with my cat, Luna (have I convinced you that I'm super cool yet?). I'm may be the least competitive person ever but I love team sports and derby looked interesting. I'm also a huge fan of girl power and bruises. I started because I wanted to try something that put me completely outside of my comfort zone and to be around a group of strong women. I love environments where women uplift one another and all of the other cheesy feel good stuff and derby encompassed all of that for me!
What other sports did you play?
I grew up playing soccer and on the swim team.
