I like fake out jukes. It feels like I got away with something.

What do you like most about roller derby?

Having a good time and doing fun things with my teammates.

Why did you start playing?

I watched Whip It. I thought that if roller derby was real, those people were really cool and I wanted to be really cool, too.

What surprised you about the sport?

It is not anything like Whip It. But it is really cool.

Why did you choose PRD?

I wanted to challenge myself and play at a higher level of competition. I also love traveling and thought if I could couple it with roller derby, that would be cool.

Because of roller derby…

I learned how to rollerskate, which is really fun. I made it through a tough period in life. I met a lot of different, great people. I gained healthy self-confidence. I found a fun way to stay in shape that isn’t boring like going to the gym.
