What is your favorite part of playing roller derby?
I love the competitive nature, but also how your league becomes your family.
List any previous athletic or club experience.
In high school: field hockey, cheerleading and track. In college: rugby for a short time.
What do you do when you are not skating?
I am a legal assistant so I work a lot, I go to law school so I study a lot, and I’m on the BOD so I have meetings a lot. I also enjoy skating at the skate park with my husband.
Advice for new skaters/young girls?
Derby is hard. It usually isn’t natural for anyone, but we’re all in this together. Stick it out through the rough stuff and in the end the rewarding feeling will be worth it all!
