I first met the SCA in 2009, when I was invited to a wedding at Pennsic. After my first day, I called into work and explained that I was dreadfully ill and couldn't possibly back for another two days. I loved it and haven't missed one since, even attending less than a week after giving birth (new babe in tow of course).
I turned up sporadically at local practices until 2014, when I became more involved with rapier fighting and 2016, when I found the A&S niche I wanted to thrive in and started turning up at events. By 2018 an increasingly severe medical issue had disabled me until I could no longer fight, but I continued to teach.
