I prefer to always skate in pigtail braids!
What got you into roller derby?
It all started when my co-worker was recruiting new skaters. I was convinced derby was not for me (I don’t play sports! I’m not aggressive!). When I found out she had never had a pedicure, I made a deal: She came and got a pedicure with me, I’d go to one derby practice with her. Needless to say, we went to practice way more often than we got pedicures.
How did you come up with your name?
My first league didn’t have much of a “fresh meat” training program, so by my third practice, they put me on the track with experienced skaters, and I felt like a liability. I decided to own that persona.
What is your biggest goal this year?
To get lower! And stronger, and faster, and have better endurance. And keep a positive attitude while doing all that 🙂
Definitely my sports googles! And I spray my gear with Vodka after every practice to keep the stink at bay (it’s an old theatre trick).
