Fort Myers Derby Girls



Derby Name meaning or story?  It’s more ironic than anything. I don’t necessarily possess a sunny disposition. (I really just needed a name that was appropriate for my daughter to say).

How did you decide on your number? The number 55 is significant to me for several reasons. My daughter was born onMay 5th, 5 is my favorite number, and it’s a meaningful number to someone I still respect and admire. 

 How long have you been with FMDG? I’m going on 5 years with the league.

 What are some of your other hobbies? I work at the local library so you can imagine that I rather enjoy reading. When I’m not working or playing derby, I enjoy spending time with my kid, family, and friends. 

 Favorite game or derby moment and why? I got lead jam in my first home bout. My other proud moment was when I received a derby award for “Biggest Potty Mouth”.

 How has derby changed/impacted you? Roller derby is a lifestyle and a commitment worth making. It has changed my body, mind, and soul. I don’t know what I would do without these people in my life.

 What are your aspirations for this league and yourself?  I want to see this league grow and become a strong entity. I see myself being apart of it, in one way or another, for a very long time.
