How did you come up with your derby name? Does it have any meaning?

I really like everything in the Mario universe and, to this day, have doubts about my derby name. But she’s a pink bomb and NSO’s wear pink shirts so it was meant to be.

 

How did you get involved in roller derby? How did you wind up with TRG?

I originally wanted to be a skater. I thought it wouldn’t be too hard since I rollerbladed when I was younger. Wrong! I learned quickly my legs don’t like quads, but I also learned quickly that the rules and game play were fascinating.

 

What do you do outside of derby?

Mostly work, analyzing data and billing, enjoying my pups (shout out Adrian and Porkchop), watching Netflix, and playing board games.

 

Likes?

A good, clean star pass, analyzing skater stats, Mario Brothers (Luigi is better), pizza, pups, weird shows, horror movies.

 

Dislikes?

When someone fouls out, overly drunk people.

 

Why is TRG (or roller derby) important to you?

Because it empowered me to come out of my shell and even though everyone is so different, we’re all trying to accomplish the same goals and build each other up to get there.
