First bout?
Hopefully November bout if my PCL is better
Best position?
I like Jamming but I also enjoy being a Blocker... would like to be a well-rounded team player.
What is your tagline?
Pistol whippin' is a good way to conserve ammunition
What brought you to DDR?
I recently moved to the area from Texas, didn't know anyone & needed something to keep me active. Randomly I came across the DDR website & saw there were try-outs coming up - thought never too old to set a new goal. Little did I know that Roller Derby would be this addicting!
What keeps your wheels turning?
Setting weekly Derby goals & challenging myself to always improve... I really like being apart of the 'derby family' because of the friendships, encouragement & support system. Plus I really love roller derby
What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
I'll get back with y'all on that...
What is your proudest derby moment?
Making the team
DDR Awards/ Fan Favorite Awards?
I'll get back to you
Got any injury stories?
I'm rather clumsy - Tore my PCL, multiple bruises, permanent sexy rink rash on my leg, purple scars on both my knees from being stubborn & not wearing knee pads at public skate night... and the list is only going to increase
Impress us with your skating skillz…
Falling means that you are pushing yourself to try new things... Therefore, I must be learning a lot!

Send out some heartfelt derby love to your peeps…
Big thank you to Dani, Merv & all the other experienced derby chicks who have taken their time to teach me & constantly give me pointers. I hope to make y'all proud. Enormous thanks to Joe & our friends - you've been so patient & understanding that the roller derby monster ate me. To all my fellow newbies - I love y'all & thanks for always being there!!
