Viking-Jr & Women's Trainer
What is the backstory on your derby name.
I have dual citizenship between USA and Norway. I wanted to honor my Norwegian heritage. I also love Vikings.
What are you doing when not training the future of roller derby?
I am already very involved with Southside. I play for both Maidens of Malice and SSRD Elite. I also train all adult skills levels, bootcamp to advance. I work for the Gulf Coast Center as a Service Coordinator. I protect the rights and monitor goals of people with special needs and/or low IQs. At home, I like hanging out with my ragtag pack of rescued animals, 4 dogs (Oskar, Tails, Frank, and Frieda) and 2 cats (Boo Cat and Fire Cat).
What are you training strengths.
As a trainer, I’m very patient and positive. I try to break down drills and build on them as we progress. I like to focus on Endurance, Body Mechanics and Awareness. I want to make sure everyone is learning how to play, correctly and safely. I can train a variety of skills including agility, jamming, blocking, and pivoting.
