What everyone's up to
Transferred to Free State Roller Derby. After taking a year off from CCRD, I joined a different local team that was known for having a different team culture -- less competitive, more community oriented. This team atmosphere was much more in line with my long term goals and intentions, which reinvigorated my love of the game as well as my passion for teaching and coaching.
Joined Charm City Roller Girls (name later changed to Charm City Roller Derby). At the time, CCRG was one of the top derby leagues in the world. This new hobby introduced me to a huge community of people, and it also inspired and challenged me in ways I never imagined before. Derby would remain a focal point in my life for a long time thereafter.
