Years playing derby: 3
Skating with MRD since: Since MRD was just a twinkle in her mother's eye!
How do you spend your time off the track? I work for a hydrotherapy company by day, researching, writing, taking photos and playing with our warehouse cat! For fun: I love to be outdoors, throw theme parties, listen to live music, spend time with family, host my supper club, and spend every extra penny on travel!
What made you want to play derby/join the MRD family? After watching a bout in Montgomery I knew I had to be a part of this revolution! I went to my first practice a week later, and have never looked back!
What do you love most about it? I feel like derby has given me more than I have given it. Before starting you would never find me in shorts, or with the confidence to rock tight athletic wear. Since starting, I have learned to appreciate all my body has to offer! On the track, every curve makes me a stronger blocker, and as they say "Thick thighs save lives!" Beyond that, I have met some of the most amazing people I never would have had the chance to encounter otherwise!
