What do you do outside of roller derby: In my day job, I do a variety of things on multiple projects my office is working on, anything from helping with contracts, to writing policy and procedure, to taking care of service calls and coordinating orders and installation crews. Everyday is something different and it's a ton of fun! I also really like to play video games and board games, on the odd chance I have the time to do so.
Athletic or Skating Background: I have skated since I was a teenager. I grew up playing football with my cousins and volleyball with my friends, so I love being active.
Why I joined derby: A former co-worker introduced me to a few of the derby girls and they convinced me to come to a bout. I was hooked! I wanted to do something athletic and this was absolutely the sport for me. It has been and continues to be my greatest challenge and I love it!
Best Derby Moment: My best derby moment was the Jailbreak Betties first win over Jacksonville at the end of the 2010 season. We were just totally in sync with each other and had really had applied what we learned and responded to the veteran leaders on the team. We played our hearts out, and as it turned out, that was my last game to ever play in, so it was always be a special place in my heart.
Favorite Derby Fan: My husband
Game Day Rituals: On bout morning, I will read through the rules (again!). A really good breakfast and then some guilty pleasure tunes and I'm ready to go.
