Meaning behind your Name and #: So as a kid I really loved sesame street, my name stems from big birds “imaginary” friend Snuffy aka Mr. Aloysius Snuffleupagus, my number is 1171, because November of 1971 is the first time Snuffy appeared on the show, so it’s paying homage to my child hood I changed it to alo-vicious so I could pretend to be tough, even though I’m a big softie
How long have you been playing roller derby? I’ve been grateful enough to be playing this wonderful sport for about 2.5 years I started in June of 2017
What position do you take? Oh boy, ANY just put me in coach! That being said I love pivoting and jamming the most!
What do you do for a living? I am a therapy aide at a psychiatric facility! Basically that’s a fancy term for helping to rehabilitate people that were once institutionalized in a psych setting and helping them create routines to assimilate back into the community, I also work for 808 roller skate
Do you have kids or fur babies? Oh man, I am a crazy cat lover! I love them they are my whole world, I have 3 precious beans
Why Roller Derby? Why not roller derby? Who wouldn’t want to be part of this full contact sport where you join and basically get gifted a whole new side family (dysfunction and all LOL)
What’s your favorite Junk food: I am a human trash disposal, I live on taco bell and my blood at this point has been replaced by Dr. Pepper
What do you like to do outside of derby? Outside of derby? What’s that?! Just kidding, so besides playing roller derby for both Fire Storm and Wilkes-Barre I enjoy baking, video games, crafting, reading and taking naps.
Something we can expect to hear you say on bout day: ‘Oh man, I’m so heckin’ nervous’ in addition to “YOU GOT THIS KEEP PUSHING” when any of my teammates are on the track
What advice you would give to new skaters? I have so many things that I would say, mostly you DO belong here, you CAN do this, you are WORTHY. These are all things I have to remind myself even now. This game is physically and emotionally taxing but the payoff is so worth it, I have never been an athlete I’ve never been into playing sports but roller derby combines grace and athleticism and creates this magic combination that makes me feel wildly powerful in my own skin which is something I never thought I would feel
When we asked a teammate about Alovicious Snuffleupagus, this is what they said: Snuffy is the most adorably feisty, cat loving, Roby Doby playing, kind hearted person on the track. She always stays positive and is forever reaching for the stars! An inspiration!
