How long have you been skating? just hit 4 years

Why did you get involved in roller derby? friend of a friend told me about it and said he thought i should try it cause he knew I loved playing sports. I thought he was mental. I told him, no way, those girls are crazy… then curiosity got the best of me so i tried a freshmeat practice and i was hooked!

How often do you practice? 3 to 4 days a week

What pads do you use? 187s

What helmet do you use? S-One roller derby helmet

What skates do you use? Antik AR-1

Where did your derby name come from? My freshmeat mama helped me come up with it. I wanted something that had edge or was on the fierce side. Marina del Rey is a city in southern California, so the play on it worked for me. I go by RAGE for short.

What is your Favourite part about being a roller girl? Can I say i love everything about it??? Cause i do. But mostly it the people you meet in this sport. People i would have never connected with otherwise. You can be super competitive in a bout and then best friends off the track. There’s something special about that.

Any tips for up and coming derby superstars? Work hard and it will pay off!
