Advice for new skaters:
Black Eye Susan
Started skating with SCAR in April 2019
Name and number origin
I collect PEZ dispensers so I wanted to incorporate it somehow. As for how it evolved to Annie PEZition... well, derby positions of course! I'm #05 as a nod to my many family members who I grew up watching race stock cars numbered "05".
I ski and I played baseball, softball, basketball, and threw discus and shotput for my HS track team. I also played rugby in college. Before derby, I had no skating experience whatsoever.
Outside of Derby
I am a huge fan of Penn State football and have had season tickets for ten years. I am also involved in Toastmasters, a public speaking and leadership organization. Aside from that, I'm always taking on and dropping new random hobbies as I gain and lose interest! PEZ Collecting, skiing, and a love for all things Harry Potter are consistent but it's entirely possible to find me doing a craft one day and building something the next. As the saying goes, Jack of all trades, master of none!
