Bio: “You won’t get out of a ticket that easy. That Trooper is relentless.”
Coming from a sports background it has been very rewarding to learn a new sport and challenge myself in ways I thought no longer possible.
RCRG has taught me the value of being strong-both physically and mentally. Playing derby is something that has fine-tuned every notion I ever had about myself. It’s been a relief to finally feel okay about being “tough”, weighing more than 165 pounds and standing up for myself…in a world where the picture-perfect woman is typically none of those!
