Derby name origin: I was looking for something that blended the tough and the delicate—and, of course, it had to be a pun.
When did you join roller derby? November 2009
What brought you to Free State? I watched "Whip It" five times and decided that, despite the fact that I could not roller skate even a little, roller derby was obviously for me.
How did you find Free State? Google brought me to an announcement of our upcoming first practice.
Which leagues/teams are you affiliated with? (e.g. Suzies, Villains, Team Maryland, DCRG, CCRG, etc)
I currently help coach the Suzies and the Villains.
Are you a member of any committees or have off-skates roles?
I'm one of the league's co-chairs.
Do you have a skating/athletic background? Hahaha, NOPE.
Likes/dislikes : I like roller derby, Christmas, and cheese. I dislike all other sports and the patriarchy.
What is your Non-Derby-Related job? Publishing: editing, writing, layout, production, etc.
Pre-Bout ritual: Putting on a giant rainbow cape
Signature move: Getting my jammer to call the jam at the right moment to win the game by one point.
Roller Derby hero: Elicia Nesbit-Smith, Kayla Woodward, and Lolo Betancourt—to name but a few!
