What Drew You To Roller Derby?

How the sport is untraditional, but still requires dedication, passion, and intelligence to play. Most, if not all the women I play with are highly educated and/or highly skilled in trades and are all self reliant. It’s a beautiful thing to be surrounded by intelligent and intellectual women and it’s kind of funny how roller derby attracts them.

How Did You Choose Your Derby Name?

I’m had brain surgery in 2014 due to a skull structure disorder called called Chiari Malformation Type 1 (it is not a head injury related to playing derby or anything, just to clarify). During the surgery they had to remove part of my skull via craniectomy and now I have a permanent 3cmx4cm hole in my skull. I figured “Hey, my brains are spilling out, and zombies love brains! So…that must make me zombie bait!” It started as a joke after brain surgery, but then it stuck HAHA! also, if you’re asking if my brain surgeon knows I’m playing roller derby: the answer is yes he does and he was totally all for it!

Hobbies

Bucket listing with my fiancé to see a game in every NHL, MLB, and NFL arena, going to rock concerts, weightlifting, and playing with our dog.

Any Past Athletic Background?

Yes! Softball, Volleyball, and Marathons were all staples of my high school career. Had an opportunity to play college softball, but you know…we were trying to figure out what was wrong with my brain first XD. Things happen and divert your path sometimes 😉
