What makes you hardcore derby? My mom went rollerskating when she was pregnant with me (before she knew she was pregnant!), so I got a very early start.

What is your job/career outside of derby? Something that I feel very honored to be able to do for a living.

Do you have any kids/petsA cat named Pete.

Who is your Derby Wife? Bio TearHer

Who is your biggest inspiration? My sister. She is a social worker employed in a very challenging clinical environment. I don’t know anyone smarter or more compassionate. And, she’s much tougher than I am and will be a force to be reckoned with if she ever decides to go out for derby!

Do you have any secret/special talents? Canoeing! Especially whitewater canoeing. I learned at summer camp when I was a kid, and I still love it.

What has been your favorite derby moment so far? Leveling up in Fall 2012. I couldn’t skate at all when I showed up at Fresh Meat; Kar had to drag me into the skills lane, where I stayed for several weeks. So, it felt great to pass that test.

What is the one thing you can’t live without? I can’t pick just one thing!  My friends and family. Books. A goal to pursue. And, to be honest, lip balm.

What is your favorite movie? Annie Hall
