Why We Love KTredz:
An accomplished high school wrestler, she moved onto rugby at Stanford University and later, joined Beantown. She is a kind-hearted person and a mindful rugby player. She never sacrifices compassion for high performance. She is an inspiration to the BIPOC rugby community and strives to be an ambassador for the Alaska Native community.
"I am extremely passionate about growing the game - whether coaching at clinics or stepping up as a last-minute referee. Being the second oldest of ten kids I find motivation from inspiring my younger siblings and the next generation of rugby players."
