Donna Business

bizWhat is your skater name and number?

Donna Business, #9to5.  (aka “Biz”)

What is the significance of your name and number?

I was in the process of completing my business degree when I started derby.  And I’m sometimes told that I take things too seriously… like I’m always “on the clock.”  “Donna Business” seemed like a good personification of all of that. 9 to 5 represents “business hours” (although NOBODY actually works those hours in real life, am I right?).

What is your athletic background?

None, really.  I took up jogging as a hobby in my adult years, but I didn't play sports growing up or anything.  I was enrolled in dance school from the time I was 9 until my teens. And my mom let me go roller skating every Saturday night once I was in middle school.

Does any of that count?

What do you enjoy during your downtime? Outside interests?

Downtime?  Never heard of it.

Are there any life lessons that you’ve learned playing roller derby?

The importance of patience and determination.  I don’t think I've tried  harder at anything in my life.

Dislikes? What drives you crazy?

Liars, thieves, braggarts, and evil people.

Oh, and spelling errors.

What is your hometown?

Philadelphia, PA!!!

What are the top 3 items on your bucket list?

1.Travel to Spain

2.Go to culinary school

3.Meet Justin Timberlake… and maybe grope him a little bit.  (Don’t judge me!)
