What inspired you to join Dutchland?
I started skating in Boston, so when I moved back home to PA, I couldn't wait to join my local team! I love being part of a community of people who support each other to be the best skaters, athletes, and humans we can be.
What are you most excited for with DDR?
Getting to skate with an awesome group of people.
What inspired your derby name and number?
My first scrimmage was the first night of Hanukkah, and 167 B.C.E. is the year the Maccabees began the revolt against the Seleucid Empire and founded the Hasmonean Dynasty.
What do you do outside of roller derby?
Wait, there's life outside of derby? Just kidding, I work two jobs and love living the cat mom life.
How long have you known how to skate?
I skated when I was younger, but I didn’t really know how until I started in January 2018. The last time I roller skated before derby was in middle school... but I started roller derby Training Camp in September 2017.
What is your favorite song to work out to?
Don't Stop Me Now by Queen
Where is your favorite place to visit?
Greek Islands
Where do you hope to be with Dutchland by this time next year?
I hope that I will still be learning new things at every practice and will still be leaving practice looking forward to the next one!
