What is the origin of your derby name and/or number?
My teammate Goldie helped me choose it, but it's clearly a play on Tenacious D. There are so many Sarahs that I often go by Sarah B (in my non-derby life) and it just clicked.
How did you discover derby?
I discovered it while living in Southern California after watching a local bout. I was very interested in joining in, but felt to intimidated and also had a pretty tight restraint on my time as I was in nursing school. After I relocated to Northern California, it was a goal of mine to play roller derby.
What advice do you have for new skaters? Get low...lower than that. Have fun, be ready to swallow your pride and embarrass yourself. We all started at the same place.
What are your non-derby hobbies? I love backpacking and sewing, but if we're being honest...derby is life!
What do you do in real life? I am a Registered Nurse who often gets odd looks from my patients looking at all my bruises!
