Sometimes people break up.
I know, it’s sad, but it’s true. And without sounding like we’re whining about how the plight of a professional athletes dating life make our job harder on this site,….. it really does make our job harder (fine, we’re whining).
Fortunately for us, Bud Norris’ girlfriend Rachel Burns was happy to set the record straight. The Orioles fireballer was dating someone, and then he wasn’t. And without being tapped in to the Bud Norris dating update PlayerWives.com was leading with inaccurate information.
Enter Rachel Burns. She reached out to us to clear things up. While reaching out to us, in and of itself isn’t unique, doing so without screaming at us is. Bud Norris’ girlfriend Rachel was happy to give us a bio. Rather than slice and dice, we’ll leave it to her:
A little about me, I’m from the SF Bay Area (met Bud through mutual friends). I went to law school at Berkeley and currently work as a corporate attorney in Silicon Valley. My work focuses on representing start ups in various corporate matters including equity and venture debt financings. I’m a huge baseball fan and watch as many O’s games (on TV and in person!) as I can squeeze into my busy schedule. Bud and I are making the distance work for now but are looking forward to a change down the road.
In my free time I love to be outdoors, especially hiking, cycling and practicing yoga. I’m currently training for a 200 mile bike ride from Seattle to Portland. I also love live music and am a frequent concert/festival goer. Finally, I’m an avid traveler and have visited over 40 countries, often traveling solo.
It’s cool when we find people worth rooting for,… and both Bud Norris and Rachel Burns fit that bill. Good luck to both of them!
