As the only women’s, flat-track roller derby league in Montgomery County, MD, Free State Roller Derby (FSRD) is hometown and homegrown. Founded in November 2009, FSRD is 100 percent volunteer-run by a growing group of devoted skaters and Fresh Meat, and is backed by a dedicated crew of referees and non-skating officials (NSOs).

FSRD is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Derby name origin: My mother came up with it. Kinda science-y (my degree/career), kinda Jen (my real name).

When did you join roller derby? Fall 2017

What brought you to Free State? Mid-life crisis? I thought it looked fun and I was looking for something out of my comfort zone.

How did you find Free State? I first saw members of FSRD in the Gaithersburg Labor Day Parade back in 2011 (I think). Took me 6 years and Grandma Seizure to get me to join.


Which leagues/teams are you affiliated with? (e.g. Suzies, Villains, Team Maryland, DCRG, CCRG, etc)

FSRD/Villains (almost)

Are you a member of any committees or have off-skates roles?

I am the attendance taker part of HR.

Do you have a skating/athletic background? I hadn't been on skates since I was 12. I do a lot of Zumba. That's about it.

Likes/dislikes: I like my beer and ice cream, my family, FSRD, and cats (not necessarily in that order). I dislike hateful people.

What is your Non-Derby-Related job? I am a scientific report writer for a biotech company.

Signature Move: Falling down? Haha!

Roller Derby Hero: Bohnes and Tofu.
