How long have you been skating? I put on my first pair of skates about the age of six. Skated every weekend at Skateland on Gravois all through high school… we thought that we were cool with our vinyl jackets with our name embroidered and school name and grad date… funny how now I am wearing a team track jacket with our logo, my derby name and number… I guess some things never really change.
What are you looking for in a derby league? I was searching for something that would allow me to regain my independence and build my self confidence. In addition, searching and hoping to find a group of women who have great character – were independent, intelligent and trustworthy. I have finally found a home and a family of guys and girls that I believe in and know that if I needed a friend, they would be there at any point in time.
What is your personal derby goal for this season? To continue to build my self confidence and become a stronger individual in mind and body.
What gets you going? WOW… that’s a loaded question. I’m a very private person… I think I will keep that to myself.. and … !
