In what year did you start playing roller derby?

2019, finished recruitment and a couple bouts but took a extended pandemic pause; returned in 2023

Is there a story behind your name?

My real name is Teal!

Did you have any previous athletic or skating experience before starting roller derby?

I have danced for a long time and still do, but other than that my only athletic experience was JV soccer for three years in high school and messing around in middle school tennis. As far as skating experience, I was definitely a scaredy cat wall-clinger growing up going to the skating rink and never felt super confident on wheels. I wanted to learn to skate as an adult and after going to several Learn to Skate classes with little kids at Astro Skate, I decided I needed to learn around grown-ups in a sport that would force me to get over being scared to fall!
