Started in Derby 02/2014
What is the significance of your derby name and number? I’ve always been an “active sleeper”. Kicky Longstocking is a nickname my husband gave me because I kick the everloving crap out of him while I’m asleep. It stuck.
What do you do when you are not skating? I’m a project manager for a local technology and communications company. Data center nerds of the world, unite!
What made you decide to join roller derby? I have a wicked bad competitive streak and after college and being in the work force for a while, I was missing that adrenaline rush. My brother, who is also a derby player, had been bugging me to give it a try so I bought a $50 paid of used skates at a swap meet and never looked back!
What keeps you motivated to keep skating? My team, for sure. I love everyone like family and I love watching everyone grow and evolve together. That and it’s done wonders for my confidence and self esteem. I never realized how strong I was, mentally and physically, until I started playing roller derby.
What is your favorite ’90’s song and why? Oh jeeze, don’t judge. MMMBop. Hanson. I don’t need to justify my decisions to you.
Name three interesting/ random facts about yourself:
I own castle property in Scotland. Legally, I hold the title of Lady.
I once slow danced with Steve Buscemi.
I have classical opera training.
