Number of years playing derby:
First season – rookie
How did you get into derby?
My sister said “Let’s play roller derby!” and I said “I’m down!” We went to a couple WannaBe Clinics and liked them, then signed up for rec league and loved it. Other rec skaters were so welcoming and encouraging. The trainers and other veteran skaters who came to rec practices were awesome, too, so when it came time to try out to be an actual skater for Ohio Roller Derby, it was a no-brainer.
What are your other hobbies?
I love going to the beach with my family!
What is your sports background?
I was a cheerleader all through middle school and high school.
How has derby impacted your life?
I have two kids, a daughter (13) and a son (10), and I have spent my time doing things for them and going to their practices and games. Derby is something that I do for myself. It makes me happy, which is something I think people tend to forget about when they have kids and other responsibilities as adults.
Any other fun facts about yourself?
I love animals, candy, and laughing as much as possible.
