As a kid I loved watching GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) and I loved to skate. When I saw the show Roller Girls, I was instantly in love. It was a sport that combine women being physical and aggressive and roller skating. I knew that I had to try this sport.
I was injured last year. Coaching gave me the opportunity support my team in a meaningful and rewarding way. I fell in love with coaching and seeing the passion that our skaters have for skating and for the sport.
Everything! I love the sisterhood, I have truly found my pack. I love that I get to challenge myself. Derby is a physically and mentally challenging sport. I enjoy the process of changing and improving as an athlete and as a person.
My goal is for IEDD to be a positive and supportive place for skaters to grow and thrive.
