Pop Goes the Diesel #488



How did you come up with your derby name and/or number? (And what do your teammates call you?)

A lot of people have called me "D" throughout my life. About 10 years ago, my husband expanded the nickname to “D”iesel.   I also wanted my derby name to have a little speed, so it evolved into my current name.  My teammates call me "Diesel". 

488 are the first three digits of every phone number in my hometown where I learned to skate, and where a part of my heart will always be.  I have great memories skating the blacktop streets on summer nights.

My love of skating, plus my love for being on a team.  I watched one bout in 2013 and thought it looked like something I would love to do.
