Why I choose to skate Riedell:
I know that my skates are made with care and meant to last. Riedell has the best customer service in the business and I can count on their years of expertise to find the right fit for what I need or want to do. I'm also a born-and-raised Minnesotan, so there's a certain amount of home state pride involved.
What I love about Roller Derby:
I love being part of a community of open-minded, creative, and competitive athletes. We have built a very special space for ourselves. And I love hitting people.
One piece of derby advice for someone just starting out:
Show up to practice! It is no coincidence that the most-improved player in any league is usually also the player with the best attendance. Say yes to every opportunity to skate -- whether it’s league practice or a roadtrip to a mixer scrimmage.
My best derby memory:
My Minnesota RollerGirls have played in a few nailbiter qualifying playoff games for WFTDA Championships, and the feeling after winning those games is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
What I consider to be my super power:
I try SUPER hard!
