Say hello to our 2018 Co-President Goldiblocks!
What is the origin of your derby name and/or number?
My goddaughter's nickname is Goldie because of her hair. One day I saw my hair in a video from practice, and I knew what my name had to be. Since Goldilocks likes everything "just right," I chose a mathematically perfect number, 28 (all its factors except itself add to 28.)
How did you discover derby?
A colleague of mine (Alice Brawl) was wearing her W.A.R.D. sweatshirt at a work event one day, and I asked her what the logo was. When she told me she was on a roller derby team, I asked, "Where can I sign up?"
What advice do you have for new skaters? I didn't start playing until I was in my forties. If you think you're too old, you're not. Just go for it!! It may take you longer to master the skills, but you can do it.
What are your non-derby hobbies? I like reading, dancing, going on road trips, playing board games, and spending time cuddling with my poodles on the couch. I'm also a Disneyland addict.
What do you do in real life? In real life I'm a fourth grade teacher.
