How did you get involved with roller derby?: Tanea 'Feelin Froggy' was at a zumba class I was in. We were dance buddies so to speak and at the end of class, she was like 'do you skate?' and I was like 'weird question' and I went to practice that Sun and was hooked!
How did you choose your derby name?: I got to really know many of my Derby girls a couple of weeks ago and they discovered I like to spank booties:-) Hehe... A couple other names like Mystress Pain and Mystress Mayhem were thrown around, but I have Miso to thank for the brilliantness of Melisstress!
Pre-Derby Sports Background: I'm mostly a solitary sports kinda gal like running, tri-athlons, biking... I've played volleyball & softball but never really got into them.
