Favorite Derby Position
How did you get involved in roller derby?
I came to watch a practice, and I never left!
Favorite roller derby memory
The first time I stepped on the track to jam. That's about as far as the memory goes because after that, I just saw shapes and colors and a lot of the ground...which was THE BEST and I had never been more excited in my whole life, folks!
Advice for prospective skaters
The negative thoughts in your head are your biggest threats in derby, so stay out of there. Get to know your girls... your teammates are the ones that truly make your day. Skate as often as you can, learn from teammates who are badass and skate at a higher level than you do, and don't give up on yourself, because nobody is giving up on you.

Probably a cross between Joan Jett, Virginia Woolf, and Laura Ingalls Wilder.
