Why I choose to skate Riedell: 
They truly make the best skates on the market and provide unrivaled customer service. It’s that simple for me. I know that I’m getting a product made by experts at a company that cares about their customers.
If I could only skate in one place for the rest of my life, it would be:
I would gladly forsake all other venues for the Roy Wilkins Auditorium. MNRG has been so lucky to call that place home! It has the best concrete floor and the greatest vibe on game day.
My personal motto: 
Say “Yes” and figure out the rest later.
My favorite music to jam out to:
I tend to fixate on 1 song and play it repeatedly. My Spotify is very nostalgic.
3 words to describe me:
Punctual. Hungry. Tall.
3 fun facts that most people don't know about me:
  • I played hockey from ages 3 to 18.
  • I once got 2nd place in a pizza eating contest (I was robbed).
  • I have a twin brother!
Someone I admire and why: 
I admire my mother. She was a trailblazer in her engineering career and I always go to her for advice. I don’t understand how she raised 4 children and we all turned out okay. She’s supported me unwaveringly throughout my life and this crazy roller derby career. She’s tough and she’s the best.
