Joined SVDG: January 2011
SVDG Debut: July 2012
Profession: Processing and Acquisitions Library Specialist
Skate Gear: Antik Spyder skates, Omega wheels, TSG Knee pads and gaskets. Oh, the gaskets how I love them. They were my best upgrade ever!
Teams you’ve played for: Only SVDG, but I’ve been borrowed by a few.
How did you get involved in roller derby? I saw a bunch of awesome looking people roll by during the Turlock Christmas Parade one year and decided to give it a try.
How did you choose your derby name & number? It just fit. I make fun of myself often, so it’s a play on many things. It’s a title of a book in my library, my legs are very large, and I love to bake. And what temp do you preheat the oven before it’s ready? 350⁰F!
Pre-Derby Sports Background: None. A natural athlete, I am not.
Off Skates Workouts: I walk and jog with my dogs a lot, I commute to work on a bike, and I do yoga.
Best Fresh Meat Moment: Coming back from the broken ankle I received in my first month of derby and proving to myself that I wouldn’t quit.
Favorite Derby Moment: Getting voted in as captain of the Innocents.
Derby Heroes: No hero, really. But my mentor is Miss Sidney Viscous, herself. She slaps me around a little and tells me to do my job when needed.
Pre-Bout Ritual: I have to keep myself busy all day. Wake up at like 8, have coffee, take my dogs out for a long walk, shower, get my uniform on, apply a ton of makeup, usually make food for the ref crew, get more coffee and some food, and then head over to the venue early to help with set-up.
Derby Wife: I’m a derby Golden Girl, no spouse - just life partners. I run with a few girls that belong to the Sisterhood of Awkwardness with Krash and Slam Bam. To know us is to understand.
Cookies, beer, and make-up
The guilt I feel when real life interferes with derby and vice-versa.
