I am a proud banked-track Roller Derby mom and provide scrimmage and bout medical coverage…Go Tilted Thunder! I live in north Arlington and three dogs, (Lucy, Sgt. Pepper, & Daisy), two cats (Tippy and Napster) round out my household. I enjoy crafting, reading, photography, music, & travel and I am always up to trying something new!

Angelia Herman, RightCare Weekend on Call
Birth Month: November
Hobbies: Being spontaneous, trying new things, hiking, swimming, traveling, taking pictures, and taking my dog on adventures.
Education: High school & Some College
Experience: While I lived in Missouri I worked as a caregiver for individuals with disabilities from 2008-2014. This really molded me into the person I am today. It taught me patience and a lot of it. I believe I have always had a calling for helping in others is all different aspects of life. When I moved to Washington I started working for RAH as a caregiver and then began working in their office which also gave me a lot of other experience that helped me grow as an individual.
What I want others to know about me: Moving so far away from everything I once knew was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has taught me so much about who I am and the things I want to work for in life and I believe the best motto to live by is knowing that life is the adventure, we should live everyday like it is our last. Lastly, I have a dog who is perhaps one of the most interesting breeds you have ever heard of. He is a Pitbull Chihuahua named Azar and he is my adventure buddy.
