Worst injury to date:

I partially tore my PCL during my Freshmeat training. It put me off skates for 6 months. I'm usually the kind of person who will ʺmuscle throughʺ an injury but when I couldn't get up, I knew something was really wrong. I have to say that the worst part about the injury was not the injury itself, but not being able to skate for so long.

Proudest derby moment to date:

I'm insanely proud to have come from barely being able to skate to playing at an elite level with PRD in a relatively short amount of time. I've learned so much from this league and the high level skaters that I call my teammates.

Pre/post bout rituals:

I'm not very ritualistic on bout day but I do always have to have ʺSharkiesʺ in my skate bag, whether I eat them or not.

When not on the track, where can we expect to find you?

When I'm not on the track, I'm often working as a cardiac nurse or hanging out with my Great Dane ʺMumfordʺ.

Additional information

My favorite ʺderby moveʺ is plow stopping. Anyone who knows me or has skated with me knows this is true.

I also love to brace/backwards block.

Cowboy boots are my footwear of choice.

I’m obsessed with my dog.
