What was your first car?
An ancient compact Japanese import. It wouldn’t run in the rain.
What do you do for a living?
Your mom. It’s quite lucrative.
What are the names of your pets, and what are they?
I have a cat who is awesome in every way. She likes to snuggle when she’s not napping or killing chipmunks.
What do you like to do outside of derby?
Again, your mom.
Are you a troublemaker as an adult?
Nah, I like to go with the flow.
What / who inspires you?
I am surrounded by inspiring people who follow their dreams, work toward their goals, and see through the challenges they face. I am inspired by anyone who gets up after getting knocked down.
What is the meaning behind your derby name?
I have always been shy on the outside, but confident with a little swagger on the inside. I decided that I’d bring that confidence out with my derby name. That, and it’s vaguely Russian and was inspired by Natasha Fatale from Rockie and Bullwinkle.
What advice would you give to anyone looking to make it in the real world?
Know thyself—and respect what you see there.
What is your favorite inspirational quote?
“You gave up too easily.”
What is your favorite sports movie?
Miracle. Although it’s really close to Slapshot.
What kind of wheels do you skate on?
I really like Atom wheels. I mean I really like them. I want to smooch on Neal Piper.
Tailbone protector or padded shorts?
No bottoms, thanks.
What advice would you give to someone looking to enter the world of derby?
Pain is just a message. It can be ignored.
What would surprise people the most to know about you?
Miss Marple is my home girl.
