How many years you have been skating? 19 years
Are you a part of any skate groups or crews?
I will always represent Hipnotic Sk8 Styles. That team holds a special place in my heart. Tha Free / KEF and of course, the best of the best Team Riedell!
Why do you 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!
Do you have a favorite move or trick?
Years ago I loved threading. Now that trend has faded but it is still something that I find so intricate. Threading is so complex and detailed, I think that's why I still consider it my favorite. Now that I have been skating for so long my favorite thing to do is just skate to the music and grove in my own zone.
What is your best skating memory?
I can't name just one! One of my best skating memory is when Natalie and I competed for the first time together in 2008. The crowd reaction was something I will never forget. Another would be winning Pro Women’s Solo 5 years in a row and also taking home the Masters cup for the highest scoring skater. Lastly, when I met my husband Colton! If it wasn't for skating I have no idea how our paths would have crossed.
Where is your favorite place to skate and why?
I love skating at my home rink Westlake Skate Center – Dallas, TX

Invulnerability - immunity to one or more forms of physical, mental, or spiritual damage. Never having to worry about mending a broken heart, pain from bullies, or suffering from depression.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
- Maybe someday get my Ph.D.
- Start my family with my husband.
- Become a child counselor / work in deaf education.
