Skater Name: Kat Von Doom
How long have you been playing derby?
What made you start derby?
I've always meant to try derby in general but I saw tickets on Groupon to a game. I went and watched and it kicked my butt into gear to actually come out and try.
What is your day job?
I am currently a student engineer on a work term at EPCOR with project engineering.
How do you balance work life, home life and derby life?
As soon as I started derby I fell in love and have been jumping at every chance I get to play and watch derby.
With a busy schedule outside of derby including classes, work, and home life it does take a bit of planning and prioritizing. For example if I know I'm going to need to put in some overtime on a derby practice day I will go into work an hour early so that I can still get to practice in time.
It takes a little extra effort but it is worth it to fit in time for all my passions. Get your tickets for our June 24, 2017 bout and watch the Las Pistolitas take on the Berzerkhers! For more information and to purchase tickets CLICK HERE >>.
