All my life I have dreamt of one day owning my own business. To be my own boss, earn enough to take care of my family and just be able to enjoy life. I have had many ideas come and go as to what kind of business I could start. As a single mom and the sole support of our family it was mostly ideas – I couldn’t afford to take risks.

Along my journey in life I have had a lot of ups and downs, made a lot of friends and have lost some too. I have been through serious health issues, some I still deal with today, but I’ve always kept my head up and looked toward what the future had in store for me.

I’ve had plenty of people tell me that I’d never amount to anything and I’ve had people belittle me for being “just” a cook. Four years ago I made a leap of faith and followed my heart to Richmond, Virginia. I landed a chefs job that brings me great joy each day, a wife I adore and through it all my son, mom and dad have cheered on my hope of a better future. One evening, roughly a year ago, I was watching a show where they featured a rage room located in Denver. As soon as I saw it, I knew this was the business I wanted to own, so here I am! After more than a year of hustle, sweat and tears, welcome to Rage RVA!

Everyone has stress in their lives. Anxiety, worries, things that make them tick, or just things that they need to let go of for a bit. Sometimes people just need to be able to let it out, de-stress, take the load off! The rage room will give them that space to go, to release some of whatever is pent up in there.

Even if you’re just looking to have some fun and hear the sound of something breaking, or just to be able to throw a plate against the wall, this is the place to come!

And who am I kidding? Whether you’re coming in to relieve stress or coming in for the hell of it, it’s ALL going to be fun! Don’t believe me? Come try for yourself, I guarantee you’ll be glad you did!
