Who do you play for?
Tampa Roller Derby and Team Zebra
What position do you play?
Pivot/blocker/jammer, jam ref/OPR
What are your future plans?
To get back to Tampa Roller Derby and try out for the travel teams, hopefully reclaiming a spot on the Bruise Crew and eventually the Tantrums. I plan to continue announcing as well and building a resume to travel with.
What is the best thing in roller derby?
The love within the community is the best part. I have made lifelong friends in every corner of the world because of sitting next to them during a Team Puerto Rico game, or talking to them at the Elite booth at Northeast DerbyCon, or teaching them in a RollerCon class. The Derby Gypsy love is the greatest thing.
