Scorned Rose, #1920
Derby Birthday: March 2011
Hometown: Bremerton, WA
What is the significance of your name and number?
Name: A co-worker and I were trying to come up with a name that fit my personality. I tend to get viewed as a very feminine person, so for me to do derby was “out of character.” I love roses and the scorned part came about because it reflects how hard I have worked to become the person I want to be. Life is not always easy and there will always be people trying to bring you down. Also, it adds a little sassiness to my name.
Number: My favorite decade it the 1920. It is all about women empowerment and having the ability to break out of the stereo gender roles assigned to women prior. For me derby is about being your self and having the ability to be confident in yourself.
How did you get involved with roller derby?
When I was going to college over at Central Washington University I had a few science classes with a lady who played for Rodeo City. We were lab partners as well as group partners for those classes and she told me about an upcoming “Fresh Meat” program and that I should check it out. So, I came and have been in love with derby every since. NDC, RCR and PSRD are amazing leagues with women who are there to support you and help you though whatever you are going though. It’s not just about being derby sisters, it’s about community and lasting friendships.
Tell us a fun fact about you!
I fractured vertebrae T10-T12 when I was 15 and as a result have two rods and a few pins in my spines, but I still play derby!!
