What is your sports/skating background?
I played lacrosse for 12 years, and dabbled in field hockey and fencing. I was saw my first roller derby bout in 2011 and was enamored, but didn’t start skating until almost 5 years later. I learned to skate with Derby Skate Club before trying out for MRD and joining the league as part of the Fresh Muscle Class of 2017.
Do you have a pre-bout ritual?
Hydrate consistently and do a visualization meditation. Cook a little, clean a little, anything to keep the pre-bout jitters down and the calm intensity up!
If you had your own theme song, what would it be?
Work That – Mary J. Blige
