Derby name and number
It works 3 ways, it has my nickname growing up in it, it implies crazy intentions, and it implies a train. I am far from small and can generate some power when I need to. My number is 49mph, which is the federal speed limit for freight trains.
Off the Track
I've been a transit and paratransit operator since 2008. Outside of work I officiate Roller Derby and was the first certified official in Eastern Washington. I travel for derby and for pleasure, having recently been to Iceland (officiated derby while there) and am planning trips to New Zealand, Central America and Europe. I'm also a fan of cooking and watching Netflix at the gym.
