Team Captain RNG Gaming Extra Life 2019

On November 2nd, I'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • On Game Day (Nov. 2nd), I will join thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation. 

About Me

I run a gaming group, RNG Gaming, with my husband, Greg (see our game-themed wedding here). The group gets together a couple times a month to play board games. Our Legacy/Campaign contingent has played Pandemic Legacy: Season One, part of Pandemic Legacy: Season Two, Gloomhaven, and Thunderstone Quest. The whole group gets together at least one Saturday a month to play anything from our game library. Greg and I also play a lot of two-player games, including various campaigns such as Folklore: The Affliction, 7th Continent, TIME Stories, Charterstone, Sword & Sorcery, and (soon) Stuffed Fables.

I work in the children's services department at a public library and am currently pursuing a Master of Science in Library & Information Science degree. My long-term goal is to create educational gaming programs at libraries, which I have already started doing at my current library.

My website, To Play Is Human, houses my writing on games and gaming culture. I currently has an ongoing series titled “DIY Crafty Gamers” which features gamers and the projects they make for their games.

I co-host Playability, an interview-based podcast at the crossroads of gameplay and accessibility. Our goal with the show is to get the gaming community talking and thinking more about accessibility in games, so we want to talk with designers/artists/developers about how they’ve addressed accessibility in past or current games. When we discuss accessibility, we mean anything to do with physical, visual, cognitive, emotional, and social (inclusivity, etc.) accessibility. Episodes run 15-20 minutes — something people can listen to during a commute, a lunch break, a walk, etc. Full transcripts are posted with each episode. 

I am a moderator for the World of Women Network (WoW). WoW is an international community of gamers. We have a Discord server that is just for women-identifying folks. We also have a Facebook group that is for anyone who believes that gaming is for everyone – folks of all walks of life are welcome to join and support us here. Gaming brought us all together, but you’ll find channels for all sorts of hobbies on the Discord server. We value our community and building supportive relationships. You can read my blog post about WoW here.

My husband and I have FIVE of the most adorable cats in the world and they own us completely: Franklin, Charlotte, Aurora, Nox, and Bacchus. Yes, Bacchus, the youngest, has his own Instagram account so you can follow his shenanigans here.
