When Did you start playing Roller Derby?

With DCD in July 2015.

What do you like the most about Roller Derby?

The camaraderie. I am very fortunate to be able to surround myself with such strong, caring, supportive, and incredible women and men. We have all become a little family who occasionally hits each other, but for the greater derby good. I also like the challenge derby provides. It pushes me to better myself mentally and physically.

Short Bio

At night I am Goredi LaForge but by day, I am Allie, museum educator, lover of all things nerdy. My father was in the military which gave us the great fortune of living around the world, however, our family has lived in the Florida panhandle the longest. But I have called Tuscaloosa home for the past four years. Both of my degrees are in Elementary Education and I use my training today to work as an Education Outreach Coordinator at a natural history museum. I am lucky enough to get to hang out with fossils all day and work with some of the best people on the planet. When I am not at work or home hanging with my cat, I am usually exploring, hiking, or at the movies. Adventure is my middle name: Goredi Adventure LaForge.

 

Favorite Food?

Potatoes. Anything potato.
