What is your sports/skating background?
I briefly skated in an ice hockey program, where I learned to love checking, when I was about 12. And I love anything that challenges strength and balance, and preferably involves a lot of expensive gear: rock climbing, and snow boarding are two of my favorites. I also love swimming…. I got my start in gymnastics, and though I never competed, it was a great way to learn as a young person what our bodies are capable of.
Do you have a pre-bout ritual?
Find all my gear, borrow some lipstick
