When did you start coaching at CRG? Aug 2014
How did you first get involved with roller derby? Trudy Struction was a guest on my radio show to promote the CRG bout against Brandywine in November of 2013. She invited me to the bout and afterwards encouraged me to become an announcer for the league. I began going to practices to learn about the sport. When the prior coach announced he was moving to New Orleans, the captains approached me and asked if I would be interested in becoming the All-Star coach, since I was already attending more practices than many of the skaters.
