Do you have a derby hero or a derby crush?
I am so inspired by all the skaters in the league who are constantly striving to improve themselves and their teammates. Outside of our team, I would say that I really enjoy watching skaters like Falcon Punch and Easy Break Oven.
Advice for new skaters?
If you want to play derby, just keep working for it. It took me several years to build myself up to the level where I felt confident enough to play a full contact game, but now that I have there is no going back. Put in the practice and it will pay off.
Anything else to tell us?
As a military spouse, the derby community has helped me to feel welcome in different communities when my partner has been posted. I recently spent a few years skating with Diamond City in Yellowknife before returning to the Eves. I know that the next time we move, as long as where we go has a league, that I will be able to find friends.
