Roller derby has been a major force in my life since 2010. I started skating in a non-WFTDA league in Cape Girardeau, MO, USA. After two and a half years there I followed my friends to Tampa, FL for warmer weather and to skate for the WFTDA league there. In 2013 I joined Tampa Roller Derby and made their all-star team originally as a blocker. I found myself in the jammer role by the end of the season and haven't looked back. I competed with Tampa's WFTDA All-Star charter (Tampa Tantrums) in Division I Playoffs from 2013-2017 as a regularly rotated jammer. During my tenure with Tampa I coached Tampa's B-team (helping them earn spots at B-Team champs) and Tampa's juniors for a year and a half (coaching them in the all-gender champs bracket in 2017); along with these duties I also captained the Tantrums within the same two year time span! Whew!
After five and half years my wanderlust got the best of me and I landed in Los Angeles, CA in July 2018. I skated with the Hollywood Scarlets in the A Coruna, Spain playoffs and earned my first playoff medal. This year in New Orleans will be my first showing at WFTDA Championships.
I'm a sponsored skater with Chaya. I have the handsomest black cat, Raul. I love parties, naps, and good storytelling.
