#66: Firebrawl

Retired Skater

What is the inspiration behind your derby name? Fireball whiskey: 66 proof. “Tastes like heaven, burns like hell.”

Best thing about roller derby? Burning lots of calories while hitting a bunch of strong women who hit right back.

What do you do outside of derby? I’m the online communications manager for the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (I build websites and post on social media about weird stuff in the deep ocean).

Random, interesting fact: I once had surgery on the wrong knee. Literally woke up post-op with my left leg in a full hip-to-ankle splint, when it was my right knee that was (originally) the mess. Oops…
