gd-katarina-whipWhat’s the significance of your derby name and number? 
[KW] – I was a competitive ice figure skater as a child in the era of Katarina Witt and Debbie Thomas.  I was a big fan of Katarina Witt and this is my ode to my 10 years of ice skating and to Katarina Witt.

Do you have any bout-day rituals, habits, or superstitions? If so, what are they?
[KW] – Wash my stank gear and eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

What was the last thing you ate?
[KW] – Cadbury Egg.  Yum!!

What is your favorite thing about Roller Derby?
[KW] – My team Grave Danger and the camaraderie of our league!  Skating + Hitting girls = Super Fun!

What is your favorite off-skates workout?
[KW] – When I have time…bike and run.

At noon, a train leaves Seattle for Portland while another train leaves Portland for Seattle. It takes one train 4 hours and the other 7 hours to make the trip. Both maintain constant speeds and travel along parallel tracks. If you were on one of those trains, what kind of refreshing beverage would you be drinking in the dining car?
[KW] – I can’t think about drinking…I’m too concerned with solving this damn math problem.. Thanks!
