Why I Skate Riedell:
I skate Riedell because I think it's cool and it just feels like home. They provide the best maneuverability when it come to the dance skate moves I like to do. (Jam Skating)
It was at my first RollerCon in 2013 I had my first hopes and dreams of possibly becoming a Riedell Sponsored skater. Then I saw the Riedell vs Antiks game that same year and was sold. I was like "I wear Riedells, how can I play?"
Where I come from Riedell is easily known to be the best skate boots in the business. I've always skated in them growing up. In addition, my dad always says a billion good things about his Riedell skates and their products. Me skating for Riedell makes him proud. All and all Riedell is simply the best brand I know and feel I could represent quite well. I am appreciative of this opportunity to do so.
How I Got into Roller Derby:
I personally can’t give myself credit to finding roller derby. Roller Derby found me. Long story short, my dad was getting his skates fixed at Montrose Skate Shop and the shop owner, John Mckay; told my dad all about it. Mr. John was super into roller derby, knew my dad had a daughter, and thought I might be interested. Eventually my dad mentioned it to me and handed me a flyer. Never seeing a game or understanding one thing about it, I joined up about a year later. All I knew was it involved skating, and I liked skating.
I like to skate around and semi-dance to my music before games. Makes me comfortable and loosen up my ankles.
Favorite Thing(s) To Do Outside of Derby:
I enjoy skating at different skating rinks or popular skating spots around the globe. Especially unique ones. I like to think the world is nothing but a big skate adventure awaiting to be conquered. I have a goal to skate in all 50 states. No real estimated time of completion, but I'm working on it. Some other things I like to do outside of derby is watch Netflix, get massages, and go to the movies.
