What do you do when you are not skating?
Spending time with family, tackling house projects, and discovering the Pacific North West.
What made you decide to join roller derby?
I moved to the area from New York in 2015 and was looking for something active and fun to do while meeting new people. One night in January 2016 I watched my first bout at RCR and knew this was something I had to get into.
What keeps you motivated to keep skating?
There’s so much to discover about yourself; between learning different ways to maneuver your body to learning strategy and reading your competition.
What is the best advice you would give to someone who wants to join derby or what was the best advice given to you?
The best advice someone has given me was never compare yourself to other people. Everyone’s journey is different and everyone gets different things out of derby. Set your own goals, be realistic, and have fun!
If you had six months with no obligations or financial constraints, what would you do with the time?
Travel the world with my family.
Name three interesting/ random facts about yourself.
- I’ve jumped off the Stratosphere hotel in Vegas
- I tend to overreact to the sign of a bug
- I can’t whistle or snap my fingers
