Slayomi, A Vixen level one chose her derby name because of her love of Feminist literature, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her love of animals. Her current derby goal is to be a rockstar! Well, she already is, but “rockstar” happens to be Slay speak for “pass my L1 assessments”. To Slayomi, the greatest derby pet peeve out there? Saying hi to the floor. (I totally agree!). When she’s not at practice, being a mom, or working at the local animal hospital (kennel tech), she can be found reading, gardening or sewing. When it comes to food, Phish food and Doritos will win every time. “Are We All We Are” by Pink is her go-to motivational song.
In her words derby (and the Vindicated Vixens) mean: “Strong women who lift each other up and kick ass. I'm proud to be a part of that.”
