Roller derby history:
Philly Roller Derby, 2014
I basically lived at the Janesville Wisconsin Skatin’ Place in the 1980s-90s, including working there through high school and jam skating every Saturday night. After hanging up my quad skates for almost 20 years, my wonderful husband Jeff brought home a PRG Tryout Flier and tickets to the last bout of 2013 that he found while out on the town. I was hooked from the first minute of the bout. He got me started and without his help, I couldn’t continue.
Worst injury to date:
Ankle at the end of my first season - some awful combination of sprain and contusion. But, hey, Physical Therapy really works and I'm back skating with no problems.
Proudest derby moment to date:
Every moment I have the privilege of skating with the amazing, strong, hard-working and beautiful women of PRD.
Pre/post bout rituals:
Pre: Hope to show up on time. Post: Sleep.
When not on the track, where can we expect to find you?
Being an oncologist, mom of 2 small kids, wife of a surgeon. So basically you won't be able to find me.
The superhero I most identify with is:
Elastigirl (well, that is if she was a working mom)
