She fills roles such as Score Keeper, Lineup Tracker, Penalty Box Manager, Scoreboard Operator, and more!

She runs her own digital design business, creating fun business cards, websites, and more! She shares this talent with Angel City as our current Lead Designer and Head of Creative.

Throttle is also responsible for the amazing and inclusive design for ACD’s 2018 PRIDE campaign. She is heavily involved in our brand development and updates, and has so many ideas up her sleeve that are in the works behind the scenes, we can’t wait to unleash them on the world!

Hmmmm.) She and her husband, Pocket Rocket who is also an NSO, are heavily active in the LA branch of the Democratic Socialists of America. They are huge supporters of feminism and equal rights, Throttle Rocket even ties her career in digital design with this passion; every year she creates special illustrations for each and every day of Women’s history month, featuring historical female figures.
