Bio
Keeper of the Skate, or KOTS are she is referred to, got her name from a song from a scary band called Terror which chorus goes like this “Keepers of the faith / I will defend your name / Only true believers remain / The blood, the sweat we gave / Through all my joys and pains / You can't deny the keepers of the faith” which she thought was a very fitting for roller derby. KOTS was a long term rink rat in her younger life spending many childhood weekends enjoying the smooth wood of Roll-O-Rama Skate Center. She never really caught the derby bug even though her sister Shirley Mowyadowney started skating with the Dolls in 2010. After much pestering from her sister and a college degree in Humanities finished with KOTS finally decided in July of 2011 to give derby a try and found herself at tryouts and hasn’t looked back since. When she isn’t at practice you can find her working at a law firm in Boulder, going to various concerts around Denver or spending time at home with her bearded other half Josh.

Athletic Background
KOTS was a self-described super-achiever in high school earning 6 Athletic letters in Swimming and Tennis, spent a season as captain of the swim team and a stint with the school’s color guard but during her college years she decided to do adult things like getting a job and gaining 30 pounds and neglected her athletic leanings. She still will swim and play tennis with her nieces and but derby is her current athletic focus.
