Paige “Danger” Triola, a graduate of Lafayette College, is a self-proclaimed legend and wordsmith. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology, she lovingly laid her diploma in a dusty corner of her room and took a job as a copywriter at a digital marketing agency. She is now a force to be reckoned with in the realm of social media marketing, blogging, and newsletter-writing.
When she isn’t hitting the keyboard, you can usually find Danger either hitting the heavy bag at her local gym or training with her teammates at PursuitMMA in Norristown, PA. She is a licensed amateur fighter in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with a current 3-1 record. Kickboxing and Muay Thai are her preferred styles, though she would like to eventually move in the MMA direction if she ever gets around to improving her ground game.
