What is the significance of your name and number?

What is you athletic background?

What do you enjoy during your downtime? Outside interests?

During my downtime, I love to read a good book or listen to music. I also enjoy doing yoga. I really don't have any interests outside of derby! Just like doing things to help me improve my derby game?

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

I have learned that you can do anything you set your mind to. I've done things training for derby that I never thought I could do, or that would've had me doubting myself in the past.
