What is the origin of your derby name/persona?

It’s pretty self explanatory but if you don’t get it say it out loud a few times.

What year did you join TRG?

2013, but I played with the Fort Myers Derby Girls a couple years before that.

Primary position?

Blocker/Jammer

What do you do outside of roller derby?

I work full-time at the Kearney Center as a case manager assisting people experiencing homelessness identify housing and other supportive community services. Also, I am a grad student at FSU pursuing my MSW in Social Leadership. When I’m not preoccupied with work, school and derby, which is very rare I like to go to shows, camp, explore, and watch Netflix and chill.

Prior athletic background?

Martial arts and volleyball. I took a semester of ballet at FSU, which translated more than expected to the skills used in derby.

How did you get into roller derby?

After watching my first game, I knew I had to join.
