Reason for your Name: The reasoning behind my name was that I wanted something that said good-looking yet dangerous. Marilyn and Bettie are pretty common in roller derby names as they embody beauty and sexiness and everything a pinup girl stands for, so they were out. So pretty came to mind. Then I just had to find an adjective that started with “P” so as to alliterate the name as I find that to be fun. Hence Pretty Perilous was born.
Loves: I love being a blocker because it is strategical as well as having more contact with other skaters. I am also wide in the hips and shoulders, so go with what you have!
Despises: I dislike being a blocker in the respect that being a jammer is so much more glamorous and you get to skate faster!
Why you joined Derby: I joined roller derby because Melanie brought the idea to me and I thought it would be fun. Then I watched the L.A. Derby Dolls on youtube and it made me get goosebumps and I knew I was in love!
Life Outside of Derby: My life outside of derby is work and kids. I have two beautiful girls that are so funny individually and together. They keep me busy as they both destructive! Like mother like daughter, as they say. HULK SMASH!!
