Peaches N Cruelty
Derby name origin: Peaches N Cruelty was one name on a long list of names I was considering when I was fresh meat. My husband (then boyfriend) kept chanting "Peaches! Peaches!" for me when I worked out until it eventually just felt like my name.
When did you join roller derby? February 2009
What brought you to Free State? I started w/ DCRG but after moving to Rockville and having my daughter, I wanted to skate closer to home.
How did you find Free State? Derby's a pretty small community (or was, in 2009), so I heard about Free State as soon as it was founded.

Suzies, Villains, and DCRG (alumni)
Are you a member of any committees or have off-skates roles?

Zero skating background. I've never considered myself athletic but prior to joining derby I was a marathon shambler. I also rowed crew in college, played all the soccer growing up, and did some field hockey and threw shotput in high school.
Likes: Casseroles, reading, reading while eating casseroles.
What is your Non-Derby-Related job? I am a Program Specialist in the field of International Education and Exchange.
