Most impressive derby injury:
I fell and was hit in the face with a skate wheel, splitting my chin open. I’ve also had my thumbnail torn open when my hand was run over on the track. Ouch.

Travel, dance, theater and sports
Other sports I’ve played:
Figure skating, softball and a brief (unsuccessful) stint in gymnastics
Most embarrassing derby moment:
Definitely falling during team intros (because I was showing off) and having my shorts ripped by a teammate grabbing them for a whip.
I started skating at age five with a pair of Fisher Price plastic skates. At age seven, I graduated to purple unicorn skates. The rest is history.
How has roller derby impacted your life:
It has improved my physical fitness, given me dozens of new friends and helped me hook my significant other (we didn’t meet through derby, but he listened attentively while I blabbed about derby for half of our first date. That’s when I knew he was a keeper)!
