Tell us about your name
I’ve had the name “Skeeter” since I was about 10 years old. It was shortened from “Mosquito Woman.”

What’s your favorite derby position?
I enjoy learning how to both block and jam. I haven’t decided what I like more yet, but the more tools I have in my toolbox (or “gems in my jewelry box”, as Tomcat Cruz likes to say!), the better of a derby player I will be. Every day I’m getting lower.

What inspires you on the track?
Watching so many dedicated, hardworking skaters go though the freshmeat program is an inspiration to me. Also, watching the OMGs travel to Australia to play roller derby shows you can take this sport as far as you want to go, even halfway around the world!

What is your favorite derby memory?
My favorite derby memory is making my first flyer for SFV. It opened up a whole new opportunity for me to utilize my art skills and contribute to this great group of people. Thank you!
