What Drew You To Roller Derby?

My best friend was on the Renegade RollerGirls San Diego and, when I moved to San Diego, she got me started with the team and bought all my gear. I’ve stayed because I’m competitive and love mental and physical challenge. I appreciate that derby doesn’t discriminate based on body type or athletic ability. Anybody can be good if they put in the work!

How Did You Choose Your Derby Name?

My husband and my friends helped.

Hobbies

Hiking, baking, crafting, trying new things like skydiving and paddleboarding.

Any Past Athletic Background?

I played soccer for 7 years as defense. Was also had a swim team in high school for a season

Pump Up Song

I like big butts

Random Fact

Since starting roller derby, I’ve lost a little over 70 pounds!

We are more than honored to have been a part of this year’s pride parade. Our sister league Renegade Roller Girls San Diego invited us to join them at the parade so we could celebrate unity and diversity that not only helps roller derby thrive, but also helps create peace throughout our community and worldwide.

This year, there were more than 200,000 people in attendance and 246 contingents and we got to be a part of that!

Pride Parade is not just about rainbows, unicorns, and just having fun, though. Pride Parade helps us kick off celebrating individuality and acceptance of allowing love to be love. Unfortunately, prejudice and acts of violence still occur to members of the LGBTQ+ community, and PRIDE has become more than marching down the streets in flamboyant get-ups. Most recently, Pride has expanded it’s international LGBT diplomacy efforts in partnership with the San Diego Diplomacy Council. This helps San Diego welcome delegates on an international level to help end the stigma of abuse toward our LGBTQ+ community and to help continue efforts in improving laws to help protect LGBTQ+ persons and even to help decriminalize same-sex/transsexual relations in other countries.

We may be few, but by accepting others for who they truly are or for who they love, we hope we will help set an example for generations to come. San Diego Roller Derby prides itself in being all-inclusive and we want to be known as allies in the world outside of roller derby.

Thank you EVERYONE that took part in something that is so much bigger than us all!

Meet the Dudes behind the scenes! We are very fortunate to have Jeff and Faris at ‘Classics Malt Shop’ sponsoring us and continuing to allow us to join them on car show nights to help serve up some mad grub and sweet shakes and malts! We wanted to give them a shout out for their generosity in allowing us to swing by and help around the shop. They continue to invite our crazy selves to work with them and we ALWAYS look forward to it. In case you missed our event yesterday, you can typically find us there when car shows are happening!

Thank you again Classics for being our #1 sponsor!
