Minnie Masher #630
Derby Name and story- Anyone who knows me knows that I am slightly (okay maybe more than slightly) obsessed with Disney. It is my favorite vacation spot, and I try to make it there at least once a year. Choosing the name Minnie Masher just seemed to be a good fit for me. Minnie is a completely separate person than "Mrs. Fraley" (what I go by at school). Minnie is sassy, fun, and likes to wear lots of polka dots and bows. My number is 630 to honor my wedding anniversary, June 30th.
Athletic background- I played soccer as a kid, but decided that sports weren't really my thing around 5th or 6th grade. I became really involved in music. After college I started playing church league softball, and after about 4 seasons realized that I was not coordinated enough for the whole catching and throwing thing. I began running in 2010 and have never looked back. I have done countless 5ks, 11 half marathons, and 3 full marathons. Derby came into my life just last year and has been a nice change from running, but I am still passionate about both.
Favorite thing about derby and/or Akron- My favorite thing about Akron is the wonderful parks system that we have. We are surrounded by amazing landscape and I think that Akron is underrated. I also love the many wonderful restaurants that are downtown!
Biggest Derby Accomplishment(s)- I am still new and have only a few bouts under my belt, but knocking Mae B. Hazardous over at practice may be one of my crowning achievements!
How/ why did you start playing derby- My husband and I started as the derby photographers last year and I was immediately hooked. I went to my first practice in January of 2013 and have never looked back.
Non-derby interests- Photography, teaching, singing, cooking, Disney Anything Else? I have 2 dogs- Chandler and Monica, and 3 chinchillas- Gunther, Dr. Drake Ramoray, and Richard (yes friends is one of my all time favorite TV shows)
