What brought you to DDR?
As a kid I watched roller derby on TV and thought it was the coolest thing. I wished some day I could do that. About 5 months ago (April-May) I heard there was a roller derby team here in Lancaster PA and decided I was gonna check it out, I fell in love!! I found when the next tryouts were and I tried out for the team and here I am. That was one of my best days ever!!
What keeps your wheels turning?
The people. The exercise, and most of the LOVE of skating.
What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
Well one day at practice I needed my toe stop tightened & I decided I was gonna put my leg up on the wall for Dani to fix, but not thinking I was still on skates and on the floor I fell backwards & landed on the floor on my back. I was not hurt but my pride was.
What is your proudest derby moment?
I actually have 2. 1) The day I passed my skills test. 2)When jamming for the 1st time ever against the all stars I made it through the pack. (That was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but it was so much fun.)
DDR Awards/ Fan Favorite Awards?
I'll get back to you
Got any injury stories?
Actually the day we scrimmaged against the all stars I was hit out and when I landed I landed wrong and I sprained my knee.
Impress us with your skating skillz…
I have been told that I am fast. I have been told that I am sturdy on my skates and that I am solid. I would by no means say I am great or anything I am far from that but I hoping that all I do is improve in everything that I can.
