How did you get into derby? A friend in my car club told me about rec league so I tried it and liked it.
How did you pick your derby name? I actually stumbled upon my name in a list on our red league bored and I just went with it. It was easy and I didn't have to hurt my brain thinking of a new one.
Likes I like, LOVE to cook and eat.
Dislikes lazy people and people that don't know how to drive safely.
Favorite thing about derby That there's always something to learn and ALWAYS someone there to help you out. The sister hood and strength of the women I skate with is awesome.
