How did you pick your name: RJ is my initials and a nick name I’ve always wanted to go by and with some help from friends SlayHer seemed to roll nicely with it. Plus I love that’s it’s a nod to a great TV show and a badass chick. 224 is my birthday.
Birthday: February 24
Occupation: Accounting assistant full time/Artist part time
Derby experience: I just joined so I don’t have much, although I was a competitive figure skater as a kid so I feel pretty comfortable in a pair of skates.
Worst Derby injury: None yet, but I did break both of my wrists at the same time while roller skating when I was 11
Non-derby hobbies: camping, printmaking, kayaking, bookmaking, macrame, sewing
Book? The Book Thief
Movie? Fantastic Mr. Fox
TV Show? New Girl
What is one thing you gained from roller derby? So far I have gained a group of awesome and supportive ladies!
Advice to anyone thinking of joining? It is definitely as fun as it looks! Plus everyone on the team is so nice and inviting, they’ll make you feel at home even if you have no idea what you’re doing!
