Years Played: Rookie Season

How did you first hear about and start playing roller derby? I saw a Groupon for roller derby level 1 training in 2011. I put derby on my bucket list of thing I want to try before I die. I moved out of the country for a year in 2012 and went to MBA school shortly after I returned. After I finished school in 2015, I decided I would give roller derby a try. I started level 1 training in October 2015 and now here I am! 

Theme song: David Guetta feat. Sia - Titanium | Britney Spears - Work B**ch

Likes: - The beach, warm sand and water, 90s alternative music, Musicals - especially Wicked and Hamilton!

Dislikes: Being cold, Cats, The Dallas Cowboys, Colt McCoy, Raven Symone, Amphibians and reptiles

Injuries sustained during derby? At my first scrimmage (February 2016), I kept getting knocked down and I bruised my left knee joint pretty bad. A few weeks later, I ended up tearing my hamstring trying to do a plow stop. I took 2 months off from derby for recovery. 

Fun Facts: I used to be high jumper in high school. My personal best was 5' - impressive for someone 5' 5"! :-)
