As a kid, my mom refused to let me sit indoors surfing the net, so I bought myself a pair of rollerblades and coasted all over town. My main route was breezing past my crush's house like I had important business on that block several times a day. Skating has always been comfortable and my favorite way to get around. Learning to play derby has helped me find strength, stability and confidence on wheels. I love seeing my progress in measurable ways and being inspired by my teammates making huge leaps in skill.

In middle school, a boy tormentor would come up with creatively cruel names to call me in class. They were usually a play on my actual name combined with a nod to my chubbiness. For a few months, I was simply known as “Pie." One day he called me Taitanic. It was the best thing he’d ever come up with (in his whole life, quite possibly). At the time, I was terrified it would stick and luckily it didn’t. I reclaimed the name in my 30s as the most powerful and luxurious derby name of all time.
