This jammer may be petite, but she packs a punch! 
What made you start derby?
I was looking for a fun new hobby and a way to meet new friends.
What was the hardest part of passing your minimum skills test?
    Plow stops!!!!
What was your first bout like?
     Well I haven’t had my first bout yet but I can imagine that its going to be filled with a lot of nerves and adrenaline!
How long have you been playing derby?
I had my 1 year anniversary in January!
What is your favorite part of derby?
I think being around so many powerful women who help me push myself out of my own comfort zone more and more every week.
What is your least favorite part?
    I think waking up after practice the next morning feeling like I got hit by a bus but at the same time it just shows how hard I worked at practice the night before.
What is your derby goal for the next year?
     I want to become a more well rounded player and feel more comfortable playing all positions.
What do you do for a living?
   I’m a Wax Specialist at the European Wax Center In North Brunswick!
How old are you?
What are your interests outside of derby?
  I think it’s safe to say all my teammates know I’m very close to my family and especially my two little Nephews Matty and Jack so when I’m not working or at derby I’m spending my time with my two favorite boys!
