Why We Love Betty: 

What’s not to love? She works overtime for women’s rugby, she was the only girl on her high school football team, and she was once a big-time DJ!

From Betty herself: "I’m super passionate about growing rugby at the collegiate level and encouraging that age grade to continue their rugby careers onwards to the senior women’s club level. Chicago is my hometown, and it’s an honor to get to represent my city through rugby!"
