Preparing for the zombie apocalypse one derby girl at a time.
I grew up playing many sports as a child. I played soccer and swimming throughout high school. I swam competitively in college. Shortly after college, pressure of becoming an adult and stress of finding a real job, derby just found me. I didn’t want to join because I felt derby girls pretend to be tough, drove motorcycles and had lots of tattoos. I had never even seen roller derby before I signed up. Sept. 1st, 2004 I became a Mad Rollin’ Doll (Madison, WI). I played there for four home seasons on the Reservoir Dolls. The Res Dolls played in the first four home season championships, and that trend continued the next four seasons with the Rollettes. I have enjoyed the sport for the camaraderie, competitiveness, and fun. The sport has made us be more accepting of our bodies and other bodies.
I played sports along with my sisters as I grew up. That tradition continues as my younger sister is also a Rollette.

Proudest Derby Moment
2009 Brawl of America was the first year BCB played in the Regional Tournament. One of our four games that weekend we played Burning River (Ohio). The Allstars were forty points down with seven minutes to go. The team fought hard to tie the game in the last second (Voltage getting a 14 point jam to tie). I had to jam the overtime jam passed the star to Rhoda Ruin and we won by seven points. It was definitely one of the most exciting games of the tournament and one for BCB to remember!
