How did you get into derby?
I went to college with one of the Dames, came out to see a bout, and was hooked by half-time. My grandma used to play old school roller derby and both my grandpa and my dad used to be ice speed skaters, so I guess it’s in my blood. I used to ice skate as a kid and inline skate in college, so derby is a perfect fit for me today.
