What’s the story behind your name? I’m always listening to Avril Lavigne to get pumped up before a game. Favourite track is ‘Sk8r Boi’
When did you join derby and why? Started Fresh Meat training in Fall 2013 as a player. Fell in love with the zebra culture and converted.
Why do you keep officating? I love Team Zebra. It’s great getting to engage with players and fellow officials on and off the track.
What’s your most memorable derby moment? At my very first game, I dropped my whistle in the toilet at half. I had to borrow one from Sparkills. Now I never go to the track without disinfectant.
What’s your derby goal or dream? To eventually become WFTDA certified
