Story Behind the Name and Number
Coworker and I were discussing what our derby names would be while watching our first game. I wanted something nonchalant funny but still family friendly. Obviously no other number would work for Tess Tickles ;)

Life Before Derby
Multi platinum recording artist with several Grammys, MTV music awards and international sensation. Wait that may or may not have been a dream from all the napping I did before derby.

How You Got Involved
Coworker asked me to go to his wife's bout (Ima Problem) I was hooked after the first jam!

Most Memorable Derby Moment
Feeling like a badass blocker only to have Nikki Stric 9 skate right though my legs!

Derby Challenge and How You Overcame It
Staying on my feet. I've got Bambi legs! I'm still working on it.
