Years Played: This is my 4th seasons a Valkyrie

How did you first hear about and start playing roller derby? I was playing semi-pro women's football, when my friend SBJ who played for the Suicide Shifters of the Dallas Derby Devils at the time kept trying to recruit me. When my season was over and we won a National Championship I finally went to a bout and then a tryout. I was hooked. I made it onto her team, but then moved to Houston to take care of family. I promptly found HRD, played with the Betties for 5 months and then tried out for a home team. And the rest is history!

Theme song: Boom Boom - John Lee Hooker

LikesI love music, dancing, yoga, laughter, sleep, sports and super nerdy games!

DislikesWhen things are not as they seem to be, two faced people, bad surprises, and bugs, mainly dangerous ones, but cockroaches are terrifying!

Injuries sustained during derby? Fractured right elbow, torn ligaments in knees, and concussion, but mostly awesome bruises that we all wear as badges of honor!

Fun Facts: 
My family is huge!
I'm the oldest of 6.
I'm only 5'5" but even off skates most people think I'm much taller.
