#88: The Kraken

Skater, Chief of Staff

What is the inspiration behind your derby name?  I love being on or under the ocean and would live underwater if I could, so naturally the myth of the Kraken interests me. The number “88” is in reference to the eight tentacles of an octopus, which most legends of the Kraken are based off of.

Best thing about roller derby? My favorite part of derby is meeting such strong women from various walks of lfe that I would never have met otherwise.

What do you do outside of derby? I’m a marine biologist.

Random, interesting fact: I had an octopus try to steal reseach equipment while diving (by the end, she tried to carry away each thing that I had). She also wanted to play games like tug-of-war (she really wanted my meter stick), tag (I was not the one who was “it”), and hide-and-seek (you guessed it, she totally won).
