How long have you been skating?
I have been playing roller derby on and off since February of 2009
What is your job outside of derby?
I am currently a full time student working on a degree in Health Information Management… that’s some seriously exciting stuff
Do you have any pets/kids?
I currently have 3 pets. Xena the Wiener Princess is a 4 month old Mini-Dachshund, Maverick is a (almost) 1 year old Australian Cattle Dog-mix, and Goose is a 2ish year old cat of some kind (we got him from a local shelter with no idea on the breed; when I found him hiding under his cat bed, I just knew he and I belonged together).
Who is your derby wife?
The one and only violent ballerina, Glady Hater! (Dr. Crunk Nasty is my side piece)
Who is your favorite person to hit?
Can I say everybody? Yeah, everybody!!!
What made you choose roller derby?
“Choose” is the wrong word. “Accidentally found” is more accurate. Gather around children, let me tell you a story: In early 2009 I was headed home from work when I passed an outdoor inline hockey rink. It was filled with women on roller skates, rolling around in a big circle… and they were hitting each other… and having a blast doing it. I said to myself “Holy crap, roller derby is real!” A quick Google search later, I found the website of the very team I had just witnessed, Pacific Roller Derby (Honolulu, HI). I contacted them and within a month I was on my first pair of roller skates and I was hooked! I skated with them until in left the island in late 2010. From 2012-2013 I skated with the Eastern Carolina Brawling Betties (Jacksonville, NC) and since March of 2014 I have had the honor of calling Dominion Derby my home!
What would we find you doing on a Sunday afternoon?
If I am not scanning the local thrift shops for some sweet vinyl records, I will most likely be on my couch playing PS4… my current game addiction is DC Universe Online.
Three words the describe you?
Positive, rambunctious, and dirty (duh!)
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet the MAN, the MYTH, the LEGEND: Clint Eastwood, because… Clint Eastwood (again, duh)! I thought that would be obvious from my sweet-ass derby name. In all seriousness, the guy is a total badass and all I want to do is sit down, chat, and have beer with him.
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
I am gonna go ahead and be super selfish here: I would become a lifetime season ticket holder for the Detroit Red Wings and the Dominion Derby Girls!!! Then I would use my shiny new private jet to fly back and forth to catch all the super awesome action! Did I mention that I love hockey almost as much as I love derby?!?! True story. GO WINGS!
