What aspect of derby do you enjoy the most?
I love the athleticism it requires, and I also really love being part of a team. Derby is a pretty unique sport because there isn't a ball or a stick or anything - it's just your body. That makes it pretty physically demanding, but also extremely rewarding because being able to meet those demands makes me feel powerful. It also makes me feel like a valuable teammate, and nothing feels better than making the team proud.
How did you get started in your roller derby career?
A coworker brought me to a rec practice and I loved it. I could barely skate, but I kept going to rec and tried out for Burning River a few months later.
