What's something we don't know about you?
I started fencing in 2018, my kids were fencing and I was trying to understand what was going on during competition. I'm a kinetic learner, I need to do it to understand. I got hooked and my goal was to be able to participate in the national championship vet 50 for my 50th birthday. With COVID, I got more time to prepare for the 2021 championship last summer. My super long goal is to be on the podium of nationals
championship of the vet 70. (that gives me 18 years to get better)

It's fun, competitive, and not only pure strength, you have to work your execution and there's strategy. And it gives me another reason to work harder at iGnite.
