awesome-sauceI am Awesome Sauce…but you can just call me Awesome, or Saucy for short. I am a league member with the San Diego Derby Dolls, and I have been skating since 2011 and coaching since 2012. I started my roller derby career as a referee and quickly fell in love with jam refereeing on the banked track. This naturally lead into a love for developing and coaching agility, speed and of course, ENDURANCE!

Prior to roller derby I would never have described myself as the athletic type (is pudgy a type?), but roller derby has sparked a fitness fire inside me. My passion now lies in becoming the best bouting skater I can be and helping those new to roller derby do the same by unlocking their inner athlete. My coaching style is packed with lots of “unusual” and hilarious visualizations and I hope that my enthusiasm for teaching and roller derby will keep you engaged while still pushing you to your limits.
