How did you get involved in roller derby?
I have been interested in roller derby for some time now. I started a new job which gave me more free time. I wanted to use my free time for roller derby. <3 I had done intense sports in the past: Crossfit, Boxing/MMA/Muay Thai, etc.

What position do you like playing?
Blocker.

Who or what inspires you?
Women/girls inspire me. Mothers, daughters, sisters, cousins, nieces and grandmothers! By playing roller derby, I am taking part in creating a community of strong women, a support system of positive role models from different walks of life. My league has become my family; my roller derby family in my giant roller derby community. It’s worldwide!

What are your derby goals?
My goals for derby are to pass the WFTDA assessment and continue showing up for practice. There will be good practices and bad practices; the point is to continue showing up.

What’s your theme song?
Bad Girls by M.I.A.
