What got you interested in rugby and why did you join the Crusaders? 

I became interested in rugby because my coworker thought I would be good at it so I thought I'd try it out. After my first game, even though I got stepped on really early which damaged my leg a bit, it was so exhilarating to just tackle people and feel like there were no rules! You just went at it. It makes you feel like a beast. I am with the Crusaders because they are the team I started on so why not continue with them. Everyone on the team is friendly and outgoing! I have a blast every practice and every game. Even though I'm brand new, I feel like a member of the team.

What position(s) do you play?  

I am a forward on the team but I am not quite sure where I really should be yet since I am so new. Just let me hit people. 

How long have you played rugby? 

Like a month.

What do you do for a living? 

I work at Sprint as a retail consultant.

What's a fun fact about you? 

I dress up my lil mini schnauzer in cute clothing.

What's your favorite thing about rugby? 

I get to hit people.

Overall, how was rugby affected your life? 

Rugby hasn't quite really made a change yet in my life but I believe it will be a huge stress reliever.
