Position(s): Blocker, Jammer

How she discovered KCRW:
I discovered derby through my daughter Dirty Heri of the Dreadnought Dorothys. She had seen a bout at the age of 15, fell in love with the sport, and decided to try out once she turned 18. She couldn’t convince a friend to try out with her so we tried out together. We were both drafted in the first round, so we went to opposing home teams.

Origin of her derby name:
My derby name comes from the KISS song.

Favorite derby moment:
I have to say one of my favorite derby moments would have to be when I was blocking against my daughter in our home opener this year. I had taken her out and the announcer said to the crowd that Dirty Heri had just been taken out by her MOM! I think the crowd enjoyed it as much as I did.

Favorite skater:
I must say that it is hard to pick just one favorite skater. I love Red Ripper. She is our last remaining original skater and deserves props for playing eight seasons. This sport can be hard on the body. She is always the first to help and share her knowledge with anyone willing to listen. My other favorite skater is Evolution. She is a beast! Lou will show you how much she loves you by how hard she hits you. Tough love is her motto, and not to mention she makes the world’s best sangrias.

Derby philosophy:
Work hard and play harder.
