Hometown: Vancouver, WA. I love the Pacific Northwest!
What is the significance of your derby name?
One of my best girls and I were sharing a jar of strawberry moonshine and telling each other stories about troublesome times throughout our lives. After hours of explanations, floor spins and endless laughter my friend yelled out “HEADSECUTIONER! That’s your new name!”… I fell in love with it and that was that. You may call me (in the blackest of black voice) Headsecutioner! But my friends call me Head.
What is your number?
1030, to represent Hallowedding, the day I married my love…Hobz.
I have held almost every hat in the book with SCRG. I am a founding member and will jump in wherever needed.
What do you do when you’re not skating?
Work. But what I really enjoy is camping, going on adventures with my husband, my babies Brutus and Juke, eating awesome food, being in the woods, hanging out with friends and family, going to the gym, watching men dance, gardening, unusual tendencies, traveling, scuba diving, vintage travel trailers, circus folk, getting fancy, dancing, art, swimming with squid, tattoos, Halloween, hanging out with dogs and campfires.
What made you decide to join roller derby?
I had been talking to a friend about needing a sense community, so she invited me to attend the first SCRG league meeting…derby was the answer she gave me. I was one of the original 12 girls to join the league and am excited to continue being involved with the Storm City Roller Girls and the larger derby community!
What keeps you motivated to keep skating?
I think proving to myself and everyone else that I can do something when I set my mind to it. I have always been very personally competitive and it drives me to push harder, but I’m also own worst enemy. I love seeing the women in our league give it their all and improve each week. It’s a good feeling to know that you share the rink with 30+ girls that push through the sweat, injuries and tears to be a better, tougher, harder pack of bad ass blockers, jammers and teammates.
What is the best advice you would give to someone who wants to join derby or what was the best advice given to you?
Don’t be afraid to fall…do it often and learn to do it well. Once you are comfortable falling you can do anything! Roller derby is not easy, sometimes it hurts but stick with it and you will be amazed at what your body can and WILL do!
