How did you get into derby?
My sister-in-law Brandy Savage asked me to go with her to try it out. I thought she was crazy when she first asked me. After 3 years, I went to see a bout of her team, and I fell in love. I joined that very next fresh meat.

Did you play other sports previously?
I never played sports. I played music. I was in orchestra and band growing up.

What's the story behind your derby name?
Valravn is a roller coaster in Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. The lore of Valravn is interesting; ravens eat the hearts of dead soldiers on the battlefield. If they ate the heart of a king, they became evil humans. There is another lore that they needed to drink the blood of a child to transform into a knight.

What other derby players do you admire?
Buenos D. A$$ of Philly

Do you have a partner in crime? Who are they? Who is your derby wife?
I don't have a derby wife, but I have two derby moms! D'Fleured from The Outfit and Spookie Smackhouse from South Shore Roller Girls.
