Why I choose to wear Riedell
I skate Riedell because Riedell is the most high quality, durable and comfortable skate around. The possibilities are endless and I have been able to come up with some of the craziest ideas for skates and with Riedell I am able to bring my ideas to life. When I skate in Riedell’s I am comfortable and light on my feet. I could not ask for a better product!
If I could skate in one place for the rest of my life it would be:
I would have to say Westlake Skate Center - my home rink. Yes, there are many rinks/places all over the world that I still dream of skating at, but Westlake holds a special place in my heart. I’ve spent lots of time there with many amazing friends and family.
My personal motto:
“Good Enough” Isn’t Good Enough.
My favorite music to jam out to:
I love skating to anything upbeat. I have performed to many songs by Paula Abdul and Beyonce. If you hear the song Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa, you can bet that I will be shuffling and if Oh Sheila by Ready for the World is playing, catch me groovin’ in the middle.
3 words to describe me:
Loyal. Motivated. Honest.
3 fun facts that most people don't know about me:
- I love teaching.
I have a Master’s Degree in Reading.
- I love the Kansas City Chiefs.
Someone I admire and why:
My mom! My mom is my best friend and I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. My mom has done everything in her power to give my little brother and I the best life possible. Now that I see her as a Grandma to my daughter it makes my love for her even stronger (if that is even possible). Her toughness, unconditional love and support is never-ending. I can only hope to be half the mom that she is.
