Biography

My friend’s mom approached me and told me I should try Roller Derby. I had no idea what that was, all I knew was that there was a movie about it. I watched the movie (Whip It) and a bunch of how-to you-tube videos about a million times until I finally went to my first practice, I was hooked right off the bat. Joining the Derby Dolls was the best decision I have ever made.I have met so many great people who have changed my life for the better, and have helped me through everything. I am so thankful for my teammates and coaches and everything they do. This sport is the best by far.
