The Tilted Thunder Rail Birds first bout was nothing less then freaking amazing. A ONE point game; and you would never know that many of them were in their first week on the banked track.

After skating with most of them from the very beginniing, I was SO proud to see them kicking railbird ass. I can’t WAIT to hook up again with them and get back onto the track.

I’m Gearing up for the class that will be starting through the Seattle Parks and Rec department, and have gotten some good response back from the survey.

If I can get a good number of participants for an ongoing survey for a few months we can PROVE that derby is unique, empowering and different from any other sport that is out there to date and readily available for women, although “readiily available” is pushing it. I’m hoping that the research and statistics can help leagues everywhere to back up the claims about the benefits of the sport.

LET”S MAINSTREAM this sport! To participate in the survey please visit Fill out my form!

Hey let’s do this!

I'm a person who found derby at JUST the right time in my life to give me hope, make me stronger and experience something that had been waiting for me all these years! My mightiest goal is to mainstream the sport of roller derby. My selfish goal is to help other people find ways to skate,connect and inspire each other to get back on track when they begin to slip off and help them up when they fall. Doing this helps me believe that there are others ready to do the same for me. In 2012 I had four surgeries, two of which were mastectomies and now at 57 I'm cancer free and back on track. Three years ago on this profile I claimed not to be a "great" coach but wanted to share what I knew. I am revising that statement at this time because I have figured out that I'm a survivor, a warrior and a damn good coach! I am the founder of OneWorld Roller Derby in the Greater Seattle area. We are sharing our resources to help other leagues form and we're creating a circuit that is coming together utilizing USA Roller Sports as a common link. We are bring roller derby to schools, colleges, parks departments and community centers across the US. Helping each other through the pack is what makes life work for me. In the world we get knocked down, get back up, reset and help each other through the pack. We look ahead for the holes to jump through. We gain momentum to find the endurance we need to be able to make it around the track one more time even when we don't think we can. Derby = life = Derby; It's all the same game to me.
