Favorite roller derby player?
Cybil War from the Texas Rollergirls Rec League. She’s a hard hitter, she’s team focused & she’s freakin awesome!

Who inspires you?
I’m inspired by the Hells Marys! To be skating with them is so surreal. I’m also inspired by Rajon Rondo from the Boston Celtics. His footwork is insane. Did you know he’s a jam skater too?

How/why did you pick your derby name?
My derby name is my real name so I guess you could say my parents gave me my derby name. I abbreviated my last name as a tribute to my favorite singer, Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s & to my favorite animator John K, Ren & Stimpy creator.

What’s the hardest part of being a rollergirl?
Having enough clean clothes to make it through the week and not forgetting my water bottle at the end of practice.

Would you like to brag about your skates?

Medusa Skates just mounted Avenger plates on my Antiks and I have Demilune Skinny wheels from Faster Skates. It’s a sweet set up.

Which one of your tattoos is your favorite?
Any tattoo I get with with my BFF Jo Ann is my fav!

Most memorable experience you’ve had with a fan:
The most memorable would have to be hearing my family & Eric in the stands. They are my biggest fans and they sure can cheer loud!
