Skater, President of Board of Directors, Bout Coordinator, Fresh Meat Training Assistant

What is the inspiration behind your derby name? My alter ego is inspired by the Mexican beauty, Salma Hayek. Seeing her sexy dance with a snake in “From Dusk Til Dawn” and then drain men of their life force made me an instant fan.

Best thing about roller derby? Being part of a strong group of women is so empowering, and then add skates, remarkable. I have always been a good daughter, wife, and mother. On the rink, I get to let out my alter ego and can be oh-so-bad!

What do you do outside of derby? I work as a consultant for the Florida Department of Transportation.

Random, interesting fact: I only have one ovary, her name is Lucy…is that TMI?
