Significance of Name/Number: The Daytona 500! I enjoy the country lifestyle and especially laughing at the NASCAR announcers serious tone as they describe the cars as they make ‘another left-turn’ over and over again. The constant left turns made me think of derby.

BIO: I am from Brier, WA. I moved to Ellensburg to attend CWU after retiring from a year of Division 1 softball. Luckily I came across derby! I am currently trying to graduate as soon as possible while learning as much as I can about derby… and my major of course! I am always eager to learn new skills:)
