Hometown: Beach Park, IL
Derby Position: Blocker, Jammer

How did you get into derby?
I used to love to roller skate as a kid but when i grew out of my skates my mom couldn’t afford skates so I just never got to skate much. Within the last year, I was diagnosed with and beat cancer. It scared me, so I thought about how this was my chance to really live life and try new things. I’ve always admired the sport of roller derby, so I decided I would try out for a roller derby team. I bought myself skates and started skating last summer and then went to the Outfit bootcamp and here we are today.

Did you play other sports previously?
Softball

What's the story behind your derby name?
I’m obsessed with Billy Corgan and The Smashing Pumpkins

Why The Outfit?
I decided to join The Outfit based on their reputation of being like a family, having strong woman amongst you and feeling like you belong even if you suck.

What other derby players do you admire?
I admire every team mate. Rookie or not, I can learn from them all.

Random fact about you?
I’m a huge video game nerd. I play Sega and Nintendo most nights.
