Did you have any previous athletic or skating background before starting roller derby?
I fouled out of too many basketball games, so I ran track. As for skating, I could generally propel myself forward while upright on skates when I decided to start playing roller derby. I didn’t know how to stop or do anything else.
Tell us about your gear!
I used to live about an hour away from the Riedell plant. When I was ordering new skates, I had the opportunity to go the facility, get a tour, meet one of the boot makers, and have boots custom made for my feet. They ended up being a frankenstein of Antik AR-2 and the Riedell 965. They also match my car!
