Tori's details:

Guilty pleasures: Raw cookie dough. The snooze button. Schitt’s Creek. Snuggling with Foster (her 10 year old Chesapeake Retriever.)

Detail-obsessed, often impatient, this team captain is one of the most confident, influential leaders in the league; on the field, a blazing red-headed blur, best to be avoided if you're not on her team. Off the field, she’s balanced and calm, meditating or writing. Obsessed with plants!

Passionate about mental health. Childhood Cancer. Creating a positive difference in the lives of others, helping them find their purpose, fills her cup right now.
