It can be difficult to get motivated after a long day but I never regret attending a scrimmage or class, I always leave feeling better then I did when I arrived.

Biography

I found derby later in life, at 45 years old. My boys were nearing high school graduation and I was ready to bust out of the suburban bubble.  Making the decision to join the bootcamp program, skating as part of a team and joining the Stripes has been an amazing journey.  The people I have met along the way are one of a kind and I can’t imagine not being a part of this incredible community.
