How did you find derby?: Celia Fate found it in TX and she told me she was either going to move to TX to play roller derby, or start a league here in Raleigh. So I started going to speed practice with her and then derby practice once we had recruited enough people. We were roommates back in college (1993) and after, too, and used to skate together for recreation before derby changed our lives.

Best Fresh Meat Moment: Our Expo Bout, jamming in the first jam against Celia Fate.
