Punisher Pixie # 3
Derby Name and story: Punisher Pixie. Punisher - for the hard hits Pixie - for being only 5' tall
Athletic background: I have always enjoyed playing outside. So, bicycle riding, hiking, and camping are some of my favorite activities. I didn't get the chance to play team sports much as a youngster, so I am having the time of my life playing derby. I cross-train at Zumba, boot camp classes, and bicycling.
Favorite thing about derby and/or Akron: I like the competition of derby. It pushes me to go faster and skate clean.
Biggest Derby Accomplishment(s): I have played for many years, but the first time I knocked the opposing jammer out of bounds at my first bout is still my biggest accomplishment. It took everything in me to go to a "public" bout, and I gave all I had on the track that day.
How/ why did you start playing derby: I saw the Rubber City Rollergirls skate by during the Downtown Akron Welcome Santa Parade. It piqued my interest, so I e-mailed the league. After one practice, I was hooked!
Non-derby interests: I have been married since 1993, and have 3 Littles. I volunteer at church and the Littles' schools regularly. The Littles and I also do living history demonstrations at historic sites in the area, like Hale Farm and Zoar.
