What brought you to DDR?
I had never heard of Roller Derby but saw a flyer and came to a bout with a friend, on a girl’s night out. Within the first five minutes, I knew that I had to do this!

What keeps your wheels turning?
I love to skate!

What is your most embarrassing derby moment?
Several come to mind, but I would have to say, every time I force myself to watch myself in bout footage, it feels like my most embarrassing moment.

What is your proudest derby moment?
(cue flashback montage)

DDR awards/Fan Favorite awards?
Blitz Workhorse

Got any injury stories?
A PCL tear and torn Miniscus, a broken Rib, lots of rink rash, and loads of major bruises: the most impressive one was bigger than my hand and included sharp zig-zags of darker bruising from the pattern on my tights.

Impress us with your skating skillz.
I don’t know about skillz, but I never give up!
