Derby name origin: Picking a name was a loooonnnnggg process for me. Ideally I wanted to have something that utilized my initials, JK, and I liked incorporating "chaos" cause I felt like I was all over the place on my skates. It naturally evolved from there.
When did you join roller derby? October 2012
What brought you to Free State? My sister had been playing roller derby for about a year and told me how amazing it was. One time when she came to visit she brought her skates. We decided to check out a practice, and I was hooked!
How did you find Free State? The interwebs
Which leagues/teams are you affiliated with? (e.g. Suzies, Villains, Team Maryland, DCRG, CCRG, etc)
Free State's Black-Eyed Suzies and Team Maryland
Are you a member of any committees or have off-skates roles?
I am the Fundraising Chair and also a member of our Roving Band of Trainers (RBTs)
Do you have a skating/athletic background?
I loved skating around my basement when I was growing up. I had no idea how to do fancy things like cross overs or stopping. Beyond that, I've been involved in sports off and on since middle school - gymnastics, track and field and aikido.
Likes: the 3 F's (family, friends, food), traveling, pina coladas, gettin' caught in the rain.
Dislikes: overstuffed paper products dispensers
What is your Non-Derby-Related job? I support an online training system for the American Red Cross
Signature move: My teammates call it the Kaos Krunch - when jamming, I dip under an opponent as they come in to block me.
