Reckless Envy #121

What's the story behind your derby name?
It took me a while to pick out my derby name. I had a lot in mind but was still undecided which one to pick until one day our coach made an announcement that we had to have our name and number in that moment because they were entering everyone into Two Evils. Without a blink of an eye Reckless Envy #121 was the first name to pop in my mind!!

What's the story behind your derby number?
My number represents my kids birthday months my first child was born in December and my last child was born in January.

When did you join Renegade Derby Dames?
Fall 2013.

Had you ever played roller derby before joining RDD?
I have never played roller derby before until I joined RDD.

What (if any) skating experience did you have before joining RDD?
As a child I used to go skating on school trips and borrowed my friend's roller skates once or twice to try them out but never owned my own pair until I decided to get into the roller derby.

Why did you join?
After watching my first roller derby game ever in Alliston the action and excitement caught my eye and I thought to myself this would be a great idea to get out to exercise, get fit, meet new people and have fun too!! Not to mention a great excuse to finally buy my very own pair of roller skates that I always wanted as a child!! ;-) lol

What's the best thing about being a derby girl?
The best thing of being a derby girl is that you get to make new friends and be a part of a very positive environment where we all encourage and help each other to grow together as a team!!

What do you do in your non-derby life?
For a living I work in the automotive industry making jack and hinges for cars. In my spare time I like to spend some quality time with my family and friends, go camping, biking, watching my kids play their sports and going to Canada's Wonderland with them, taking my dogs for a walk and Dj-ing sometimes at parties.

What is your most memorable derby moment?
My most memorable moment was when I finally became a Bombshell and then a month later playing in my very first bout.

What is your derby goal/dream?
My derby goal and dream for now is to just continue practicing my skating skills and master them to become a better player!!

Who is your favourite skater/derby idol?
There are too many derby idols in RDD to just limit it down to only one. Every single player in our league has something unique I like about them that gives me the hope and encouragement to become the best that I can be! :-)
