Karma Avenger #360
How many pets do you have? What kind?
Enough to be considered a crazy cat lady – currently 8 cats and 2 dogs in my house ☺ Lots of furry love to go around!
How long have you been skating?
Almost 3 years (off and on) on a derby team but loved, loved, loved to roller skate as a kid!!!
How many hours have you spent in a tattoo chair?
None, but I contemplate it every day!
What do you do for a living?
By day, I am a social worker and teacher so I wanted a name that conveys my efforts to seek justice both on and off the track so I chose Karma Avenger.
Yep! I was lucky enough to get hit hard by a super tough roller girl that landed me into a brick wall, breaking my nose and fracturing my shoulder. However, the event taught me a lot about awareness, reaction time, and getting back up no matter how hard you fall.
Proudest derby moment?
Receiving the MVJ in my first away bout. I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and I was so proud of all we accomplished together!
Who do you admire the most?
Everything! Roller Derby is evidence that any woman (any age, size, ability) can learn to play this sport and that all women have an incredible strength and capacity to live up to their potential, especially in a circle of sisters (or derby wives)!
