In what year did you start playing roller derby?


Were you previously a member of another league?

Little City Roller Derby

Is there a story behind your name?

I have adored Shania Twain since I was little and leopard is my favorite color. How could I resist a punny reference to honor an icon?

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

Prior to derby, I had been weightlifting for several years and couldn’t skate without holding onto someone. Derby helped me see myself as a real athlete.

We all end up in the penalty box at some point. Which penalty is your favorite and why?

I have perfectionist tendencies, so no penalty is my favorite. But I’m most likely to get called on a directional. I get so focused on hitting someone I forget what direction I’m rolling. Whoops.
