When did you start playing roller derby?
I started in 2011 with Hammer City Roller Derby.

How did you pick your derby name and number? 
My derby name is my real life name. I spent many years under the name Biggie Falls, an homage to Biggie Smalls.

What’s your favourite part about roller derby?
My favourite part of roller derby is having the opportunity to push myself through different challenges. Roller derby gives me a way to learn and grow each week.

What is your athletic background?
I played lots of sports through elementary and high school – and then not much after that. A little softball, but that’s it.

What do you like to do outside of derby?
Craft, hike, spend time outside.

What is your pre-game pump up song?
I don’t think I have any one song in particular at the moment! I like to listen to loud music on my way to the venue, but the music changes from game to game.

Who or what inspires you?
My teammates inspire me. Seeing how hard they work, how kind they are to each other, and the effort they put in makes me want to work harder and be a better teammate.
