USA Rugby player Ariana Ramsey joins Paradis Pros!
We are so excited to welcome Ariana Ramsey to Paradis Pros! Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Ariana is a member of the USA Rugby Team who graduated from Dartmouth College in 2023. She was an economics major, with a minor in Mandarin. Fun fact: she also speaks French!

She broke her school record in the 100 meter dash, but going into her sophomore year, Ramsey says she fell out of love with track and picked up rugby. In 2018, Ramsey was recruited as a scrum half/wing to Dartmouth College, where she was named team MVP in 2022 as well as MVP of 2022 NIRA Division Championship.
While at Dartmouth, Ramsey balanced playing rugby with majoring in economics and also began training for the Olympics. In 2019, she competed in the Pan-American Games, where she helped her team win a silver medal.
