Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Had only seen roller derby on TV in the '80s.
Remembered it as "girls on skates who hit people," which sounded exciting.
Joined the Dominion Derby Girls, Virginia's first all-female flat track roller derby league.
When she first started skating, she'd never played sports, she hadn't worked out in years.
At first, she was out of breath, struggling, but she pushed herself because she knew her team was depending on her.
Says she was originally afraid to fall; had her first big wipeout, realized she was fine, and after that, she had no fear.
Says she'd never be happy behind a desk crunching numbers-loves her orthodontic job because of how much it helps kids.
When she's training new girls, she tells them "set a goal for yourself every practice," work on one skill at a time.
Keep following my journey
