501 Striker

1. What do you like to do for fun?

SnapChat my cat Sam like its my job, playing with makeup, playing video games, going to see concerts and crafting. I like making crafts. Like a lot. Like too much a lot.

2. How long have you been skating? Any form/type/skate, etc.

I have been skating (derby related) for 5 years. I tried out for the team in 2011 and didn’t make it. So, what I did for the year 2012 was learn to ref and skate as a freelance skater in invitationals. I was also in the first class of LCHR’s “Meat Locker” (I am the Meat Locker Coach this year. Awesome foreshadowing moment),  I did that for a year and tried out again at the end of 2012 and have been playing since.

3. What is your favorite part of roller derby?

I have been in team sports since I was in 7th grade so needless to say I am extremely competitive. I love the competitive drive that comes with derby. I love the fact derby has been the only thing that has made me WANT to cross train outside of skating practices. I also love seeing my teammates accomplish a goal as a team, there is nothing more satisfying.

4. What other sports do you enjoy, favorite sports team?

I enjoy football and hockey mainly. I love the Carolina Gamecocks and was born as a New England Patriots fan. I love watching hockey live more than following it on tv and in NHL world. Watching the Stingrays just gets me fired up.

5. What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I am a classic violinist and I discovered I was double-jointed last year.
