What is your skater name and number?
What is the significance of your name and number?
My family actually came up with my name. We have a long history of military service and my husband was deployed to Iraq at the time I started derby in Germany.
I knew what number I wanted before my name which is why I needed help from my family! The m60 was my favorite weapon when I was Security Forces in the Air Force.
What is your athletic background?
I have always loved any sports. My dad taught me and my sisters pretty much everything, from football, volleyball, softball, basketball, tennis and SKATING... to fishing, tracking, and shooting, both guns and bows.(these are sports in the South!)
What do you enjoy during your downtime? Outside interests?
Family downtime has to be the best. I also love to build things, refinish furniture and antiques, and cook. Love to be outdoors.
Are there any life lessons that you’ve learned playing roller derby?
Always write your name on your water bottle.
Life lessons from derby... Nothing worth pursuing is ever easy. It takes hard work, determination, tears, defeat, pain and sacrifice...but so worth the end result. And when I look back one day, I can say, Wow, what a ride! I so am thankful for every single moment that gave me the opportunity to be a part of this awesome sport with all the amazing, kick ass women I had the privilege of knowing, and the friendships I will treasure the rest of my life.
Sappy? Cheesy? Maybe.. but absolute truth.
Dislikes? What drives you crazy?
Bugs. As far as crazy, I'm cajun. We take crazy, french kiss it and invite it in for dinner.
What is your hometown?
I was raised in South Louisiana. No place in the world like home.
