We are proud to sponsor Drama Mama who is such an inspiration to all those around her. Welcome Jeneva to the Better Bearings Team
Jeneva aka (Drama Mama) was born and raised in Roswell New Mexico. She is a skate “collector” but currently skating the Chaya Jumps and her van set-up with CIB sliders depending on what tricks she decides to work on. She is currently sponsored by Wildbone Skate Team, Mountainside Skate Shop and Demaree’s Pumping. Drama Mama is a Roller Derby coach for Roswell Roller Derby and plays with West Texas Roller Derby. She fell in love with park skating first and then started Roller Derby. She has said, “park skating makes me a better derby player and playing derby makes me a better park skater; so if you don’t find me on the track, come find me on the ramps!”
Drama is also a breast cancer survivor. When she was 27 years old she received a diagnosis and had to have a Double Mastectomy removing both of her breast and reconstruction using her abdomen muscles. She is a small business owner which gave her the opportunity to focus on trying to help the homeless in her Community. Five years ago she started a tent and sleeping bag program because they didn’t have a shelter in Roswell. After forming a 501(c)(3) and a board of directors they were able to raise enough money to open two homeless shelters. She had been awarded two humanitarian awards from her hometown.
Drama is always looking at coming up with new tricks. Including the drama flip and a fakie front flip pivot.
