Awards & Accolades: I received an MVP award prior to our bouting season for working my ass off. I’m sure there was an official name for it but I don’t remember. And we all probably got those back then because everyone was truly an MVP in getting the league off the ground.
Favorite Memories: The old DIY, down and dirty days!! The Throttle Rocket Nights at The Funhouse (although I don’t REALLY remember them in their entirety). The Blacktop Brawl. First bout a Southgate. The first bout at the Hangar
Derby Wife: I don’t need a ball and chain dragging me down.
Life After Derby: THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE DERBY! Ha ha.
Well, after leaving RCRG in 2005, Billy Boilermaker and I moved down to Los Angeles and started the Angel City Derby Girls, so essentially we spent another couple of years completely consumed by all things derby. We went through the similar trials and tribulations as starting up Rat City and like RCRG, ACDG has become a very successful league.
After I left LA and moved to Austin, I decided I wasn’t going to do derby anymore because I wanted to pursue other interests such as traveling and not having to go to practice…and to focus on my career. I’m now the Event Producer at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater. I get to live in an amazing city with my wonderful boyfriend, 4 dogs, 2 cats and get paid for what I love to do.
Original Bio: I make the worst scrapbook keeper. I’m sure it’s in a box somewhere in the attic, squished between show posters, used up lighters and old parking tickets.
