What is your sports/skating background?

I only roller/ice skated when I was a young lass. I was a long-distance runner in high school and college (mental endurance FTW!). I’m excited to also be a Derby Lite Instructor as an additional way to spread the love of rollerskating.

Do you have a pre-bout ritual?

I watch either 300 or Warrior the night before a bout, and I paint my fingernails the day of the bout. If I can dance/Zumba with my teammates as part of our warm up, I have an awesomer bout.

If you had your own theme song, what would it be?
