She ain’t your sweet little sister…

Join Date?
August 2009
First bout?
June 2007 with the Mason-Dixon Roller Vixens
Best position?
What brought you to DDR?
The desire to play at a more competitive level and be a part of a well-organized group of amazing people.
What keeps your wheels turning?
Why, well-oiled bearings do, of course! snort! That and something intangible, yet incredibly rewarding. It’s just a feeling. It’s skating faster, feeling stronger, a successful block, hearing that whistle as you break the pack as lead jammer. Something like that.
What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
Shameless people are hard to embarrass. However, I did once emphatically try to call of a jam when I was not Lead Jammer. Oh my.
What is your proudest derby moment?
Playing at regionals in 2010 - the good, the bad, and the ugly, I’ll take it all!
DDR Awards/ Fan Favorite Awards?
2009 Rookie of the Year
Got any injury stories?
I think the worst of it was a bruised rib… Many bruises… Permanent rink rash on my left butt cheek.

Send out some heartfelt derby love to your peeps…
Thanks to my family and all my friends that have come to bouts - I love familiar faces in the crowd! MDRV - I miss you ladies! Major thanks to all the HARD, Charm City, and Harm City folks that have helped me learn this game and helped MDRV get started. Punk Sue - my lovely derby wife, I adore you! All my Dutchies, you are the best group to skate with ever! I’ve been through a lot of life changes in the last year, thanks for making me feel like I have a home in Lancaster. <3
