Favorite part of derby: The all-inclusiveness of the sport. Everyone has a place regardless of age, size, gender, previous experience, etc., and no other sport is like this. The roller derby world is a wonderful, accepting, bad-ass place! I also love the fast-paced nature of the game. It’s challenging and thrilling for skaters and fans alike.
Favorites: Cheese pizza, Star Wars, and my cat Sophie.
How I prepare for a bout: I listen to high-intensity music and skate around to warm up and get in the zone. Then I talk with teammates and allow myself to have some fun, joke around, and not feel too serious. It helps ease my nerves!
Hobbies other than derby: Water skiing and wake boarding, camping and other outdoor fun-times, being around friends and family.
