How did you get into derby?
I watched my first roller derby bout in San Antonio late September 2006 and was mesmerized by the skaters, production and game play. After the bout, I contacted a skater for more information and was invited to come watch a practice. I was super nervous and scared of what I would be getting myself into, but after watching one practice I just knew this was my sport. I purchased all my equipment and gear within a week and began practicing right away. I have been playing roller derby ever since.
Junk food addict! I love pizza and anything that’s bad for you.
Who inspires you?
I’m inspired by every derby girl who gives 100% on and off the track. These talented women make me want to be better and inspire me to keep pushing through the pain and to overcome any obstacle in my way.
What are you most thankful for in your life?
My family and friends who love and support me.
How has roller derby impacted your life?
I never expected to play a contact sport. I was the girl who excelled academically and was not involved with athletics whatsoever. Now, I look forward to practices and working my butt off. Derby has consumed my life and I have poured my heart into it. I really can not imagine my life without it.
