I joined the wonderful world of roller derby 5yrs ago, thanks to my derby wife, Valkillree, who suggested I come check it out with her! I came to ONE practice and LOVED IT!! I couldn’t wait to start hitting chicks, needless to say it wasn’t as easy as it looked. The skating part was easy, since I’ve been on roller skates since I was about 7yrs old. Learning the rules, the correct way to fall and hit was a new ball game for me; but it didn’t take long and I was playing in my first bout, Season home opener!
One of the great things about derby is coming up with your name/number. For the first 3 years I skated as Miss D KrippleHer, #3022. This made sense to me since my first name is Misty. The number was easy to come up with too, my daughter was born on the 30th and my son on the 22nd. Due to returning to school, I retired from derby, it was heartbreaking for me because I really enjoyed it … however that only lasted 2 seasons! Now I’m back, Krippl’Her #3022!
If I’m not playing derby, then I’m either working or spending time with my husband and 2 kids.
I have worked as a Medical Assistant for the last 15years. However, I recently graduated and started working as a COTA, Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant, which is my dream job!!
