Skates: I love them only second to my family. They are custom fit Bont hybrid carbon speed skates, with 45 degree trucks. They fit perfectly from the day that I got them. Each skate weighs a whole pound less than my old skates. They are so light, I can run in them. One of my friends once said to me that custom-made skates are like your children– you know you are going to love them, but you have no idea how much until you have them. That is how I feel about my Bonts.

Derby Idols: Bonnie Thunders, Suzy Hotrod, Sandrine Rangeon

Derby Wife: Deathskull

How Did You Get Into Derby: I started going to derby bouts after one of my friends tried out and started skating with the Stix. I was a fan for a couple of years before I got up the nerve to try out myself.

Greatest Derby Moment: Probably my best derby moment was winning MVP at the Demons-Stix game in my rookie year. My sister was in the audience and it was the first time she had seen me play.
