Wicked Awesome

Number: 
1.21 Gigawatts

How did you come up with your derby name and number?
My boyfriend and I were talking about when we got married that we would both change our last names to something new, he joked that we should be Mr. and Ms. Awesome. I was talking to a fellow skater Maximum Stride and she came up with the Wicked part, it was a perfect fit almost like it had always been my name.
Why did you join TTRB?
Because it's banked track and it the sh**!
How long have you been skating?
I’ve skated since I was a kid but I actually started seriously skating derby in January 2011 when I was a part of the first flight school
Who is your derby idol?
I love anyone that has the guts to strap on 8 wheels. Right now though I have been studying Raven Seaward of LADD, I would like to skate like her.
What derby related injuries, if any, have you had?
Nothing broken yet--knock on wood--but I have tore my calf pretty bad and lots of bumps and bruises.
What do you do with your time, other than derby?
Cooking, knitting/crafts, playing games with the family
Do you have a quote/saying that means a lot to you?
It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great.
~ A League of Their Own
What makes you happy?
Coffee, my pug, chocolate cake, Mr. Awesome, derby, a well-made sweater, peonies, being with my family.
What are your dislikes?
Gossip, food that's too spicy, not getting enough sleep.
What is your beverage of choice?
Whiskey sour or strong coffee.
If you could be anything other than human, what would you be?
A God.
