Jill Nye the Science Guy has been a physical therapist since 2008 and an athletic trainer since 2004. Before that, she was a sprinter, softball player, and violist, so movement has always been a big part of my life. When she picked up roller derby in 2012, she got to apply everything she’d learned to her own athletic development and injury rehabilitation. She also noticed that in the DIY culture of derby there was a lot of bad information and misconceptions about training and self-care. Now she’s on a mission to rehab skaters and help them meet their performance goals, no matter what level they are at.
