Mean girls, people telling me what I should or shouldn't do, chop liver, dieting, running, doing laundry, cooking, and discussing politics.

athletics

I was on the Everett Expressions Artistic Roller Skating team for 9 years, was a regional champion, when I was younger, which was many many years ago.

bio

I am a registered nurse at a local hospital working 12 hour nightshifts on the cardiac/stroke unit. I am an only child, but I have 2 daughters ages 2 and 13. I have been with my husband for over 10 years. I have a very supportive extended family and in-laws. I have been overweight all my life weighing as much as 275 lbs, but I made a decision to have gastric bypass surgery. As a part of the pre surgical requirements I needed to invest in an exercise program, I hate running, disliked gyms, but loved roller skating, which lead me to playing roller derby. The girls here are super supportive, non-judgmental, and didn't frown upon but celebrated my size. This is the best sisterhood I've ever experienced.

injuries

None so far, knock on wood.
