# Years Playing: uno
Profession: Nurse Practitioner
Why I play/Why BBRG: Two things really made derby click for me. First, I got to take out aggression under this totally separate identity. Second, I realized that “other person” on the track giving and taking hits like it was nothing was inside me all along. It is empowering to have a group of women help you realize your potential. Derby, specifically my BBRG teammates, have given me energy and confidence I didn’t know I had before.
