Significance of Name or Number?

When Did you start playing Roller Derby?

I joined up with DCD in August of 2017!

What do you like the most about Roller Derby?

I was never a super athletic person, but starting roller derby has allowed me to work on that while being surrounded by other women wanting to do awesome things out on the track. It’s been great for my physical and mental health, and I’m so glad my teammate GoGo dragged me out to recruitment night!

Short Bio

I was born on an air base in New Mexico, and moved to Rhode Island at the ripe age of 4 months. I spent my grade school years there, realized I was bad at sports there, and all that jazz. After graduating in 2012, I moved down to Alabama to do my undergrad and I’ve been here ever since – though now I’ve finished my bachelor’s and starting working on my PhD. Grad school while derbying is hard, but it’s also pretty rewarding too!

Favorite Food?

It’s hard to pick just one, but in times of stress it’s a pint of Chunky Monkey.

Favorite Song

It changes every day, but I’m feeling “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers.

Likes

Roller derby (duh!); adorable animals; the arts

Dislikes

Being called short (yeah, I know, the irony); trying to figure out how magnets work

Final Thoughts

DCD is an amazing team and we’ve been growing so much in the past year! #theoneandonly
