Kris Gnarly


Why your name?
I chose Kris Gnarly as a tribute to the wonderful Chris Farley. I love that man.

Why roller derby?
I grew up with two wild-child older brothers and my childhood nickname was Lion Girl. Roller Derby makes me feel right at home!

My entire body is constantly decorated in bruises and I love it!

What’s your non-derby life like?
I work in healthcare to support my small family of my hubby and fur child, Ralphie. I love my family/friends, Lake Michigan, dogs, Blink 182, Pinterest, laughing, baking, and reading.

Advice for someone interested in derby?
Try it out, You can do it!!! 🙂

During a bout you’ll be the one…
Taking down the Jammer!
