Derby Anniversary 7/7/2014

How did you find roller derby? Picked up a recruitment flyer at the local Starbucks while I was home on winter break from college. My boyfriend (now husband) jokingly challenged me and told me I was too chicken to play roller derby. Of course, I couldn't let that stand. Graduated college, got a job back home, showed up to recruitment having already purchased all the required gear, and the rest is history.

What's your sign? I am a Leo which I definitely believe rings true. I am very ambitious when it comes to the performance goals of myself and my team. I enjoy being in a leadership position and love to coach. However, I know I can be abrasive, domineering, and demanding of myself and others. Being a part of these league has really helped me identify the downfalls of my personality and direct my energies in a more productive way.

Who is your roller derby hero and why? Laci Knight, now retired from Angel City Roller Derby. She is Pivot Goals TM. She could deliver absolutely brutal offense and was even more lethal when she took the star. She is a seriously accomplished athlete on and off the track.

What is your bout day breakfast? I consume a plain baked potato and an electrolyte beverage three to four hours before the bout. Gotta have that carb energy. Sometimes I'll have half banana an hour before bout time as well.
