Athletic Background

I grew up playing lots of sports, but in high school I was a football cheerleader, varsity cross country skier and was part of the track and field team.

Favorite Quote

“People think I am strong.  I am not strong.  There is a difference between a strong person and a stubborn person who just won’t put her sword down.  I am the later.  Again and again and again…pick the sword up, pick the sword up, pick the sword up…”

Inspiration

Those who don’t let age or circumstances prevent them from going after what they want.  Also Hartlyn!’s footwork skills and Rogue’s blocking abilities.

Best Skill

Tenacity

Biggest Challenge

Finding balance on my skates and trusting my ankles.

Biography

Born and raised in Minnesota, I left for college at 18 and never went back to North Star Country.  After finishing my undergrad and graduate degrees from the University of Alabama Huntsville, I completed post-grad work at Vanderbilt medical center.  From there I moved to NYC and began my career in pharmaceutical drug development.  After 5 years in Manhattan and Brooklyn, I moved to San Diego to continue my career in drug development.

I’ve wanted to play roller derby for a very long time.  I heard about SoCal and SDDU from a friend who had also started playing.  I’m so excited to start playing league bouts!
