Started in Derby 04/2016
What is the significance of your derby name and number? My dad is Lucky Vantucky and my mom’s nickname is Punkin. so that makes me a Lucky Punk 🙂
What do you do when you are not skating? Snuggle Mr. Punk and our pets: two dogs, two cats and two dozen fish! Home remodel projects….our house was built in the 60’s so there’s ALWAYS something to do. Outdoor adventures like hiking, camping, biking, swimming, disc golf, skating, walks with the pups, road trips. I’m lazy a lot of times, too, and like doing things like card games, puzzles, eat pizza, drink, hang out, listen to music, get weird. I don’t know, just live the lucky life!!!
What made you decide to join roller derby? My dad introduced me to derby quite a while ago… he took me to some Rose City bouts, we were even ass kickers a couple times. But more recently he started getting involved, as Lucky Vantucky. Eventually he became Storm City’s announcer. He told me they had orientation coming up and that they would teach me everything I would need to know to be a derby skater. So knowing that, I decided to take the opportunity to join in on the fun! Thanks Tad!
What keeps you motivated to keep skating? Knowing I still have so much more to learn. Every time I put my skates on I am growing and improving. That keeps me motivated to keep putting in the effort and strive to see how far I can go! I am lucky and thankful to have an amazing group of derby people to look up to and learn from!
What is the best advice you would give to someone who wants to join derby or what was the best advice given to you? Just do it!
If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time? Hang out in Hawaii!!
What is your favorite ’90’s song and why? Ugh, there’s so many good ones how does anyone choose just one? I love so many but I guess a few are…Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Metallica…..Savage Garden??? ya
