I saw it on a tattoo show when I was in high school. Never put it completely out of my head. Shortly after I turned 19, I revisited the idea and bought myself a pair of skates. I went to see my first bout during the summer of 2012 (2 years later) and joined ARD 3 months after that. The rest is history.
Favorite roller derby memory
There's so many. So many great hits, beautiful strategic plays, light bulb moments for newer skaters, last minute triumphs... Roller derby is full of all of that. I couldn't choose just one.
Advice for prospective skaters
Dive in. ARD is a wonderful adventure. You'll do things you never dreamed of, meet people from all walks of life, and grow into an even more spectacular human being.
