Mustache Her #17
When did you begin to play derby?
What's your primary position?
Where are you from?
What's the story behind your name?
When I was fresh meat, I wore a lovely pair of socks with mustaches on them. Something stuck and girls just kept referencing me by my socks, since they didn’t know my name. It later transformed into just Stache!
You dedicate a lot of time to derby, so what has derby done for you?
Derby has helped me get to know and really realize not only the real person that I’ve always been, but, also the person I continue to work on each day bettering myself with each accomplishment. The self-confidence I’ve obtained from skating and bigger then that – the close friendships and bonds I’ve formed are all immeasurable. Its the best and one of the only "real" things I’ve ever done for myself.
First and foremost my league mates. I look up to them & they help push & make me successful in derby and life. Oh, and umm yea, Hauss The Boss, (‘cus she’s pretty intense).
How'd you get into derby?
Came across a flyer for a bout in Convention Hall in Asbury Park. I checked it out and my heart instantly fell in love with the sport. The passion and determination these girls already had for this sport was intense. I just knew it was something I was going do and become successful with one day.

Favorite derby moment?
Skating in Convention Hall right after Hurricane Sandy. It was so humbling to realize that your material things and prized possessions could be taken, but this thing, this love and passion for skating with my family, no one could touch that! It was the best bout I’ve ever been a part of.
Love plow stops and booty blocking....not so fond of backwards skating.
Whatʼs the story behind your number?
My oldest son, Richard, was born on St Patty’s day. I consider him my 'lucky" charm and I feel blessed and "lucky" to be his mom. Only fitting to have my number be Lucky 17, his day of birth!
To set myself calm and humble yet fierce and aggressive all at the same time. Finding my derby balances and shift them as needed at the right times. Training smarter not always harder. Making sure I always know the difference.
