Note from Nutz
Don’t limit yourself! Trust your instincts and decide what is right for you. Have adventures, live and take time to exercise, laugh and be with the people who lift you up. I’m glad I did and found the amazing derby community that is growing and connecting people all over the world. xo

What is your sports/skating background?
My mom loved skating so that was our thing from the time I was 6-13 on quad/artistic skates. Picked up roller blading for awhile in my 20’s, split my face open in the middle of a street in SF and never got back on wheels until moving to ME in 2013. Dianthrax, a retired MRD skater mentioned Derby Lite and away I went…pretty much life changing for me. FYI..you are never to old to do the things you love the most!!!
Do you have a pre-bout ritual?
I try and keep my head from getting the best of me…so no ritual but quiet focus and positive visualization.
If you had your own theme song, what would it be?
no theme songs
