Derby name and number
I studied bat foraging behaviors for my Masters Degree in Science, so my name reflects my 3 obsessions: derby, bats and baked goods. Some call me a bit batty, so that might have something to do with it too.
Off the Track
I'm a biologist, married to a zombie-loving microbiologist, a mom to 2 crazy boys, and use my spare time to sew and craft. My life is crazy busy, but I love it that way.
Derby lets me focus on me. Its makes me physically and mentally stronger and introduced me to women I both admire and aspire to be like. Derby is my way to relax. Margaritas help with that too.
