Poughkeepsie Paralegal Takes 'Em Down

In addition to her demanding job as a paralegal, Ann Jackson of Poughkeepsie, N.Y. tackles people.

No, she's not herding wayward criminal defendants back into the courtroom; she plays rugby. This summer, Jackson will be playing rugby for the Hudson Valley Rebels in the women's open division in the Empire State games.

Jackson is a relative newcomer to the sport and started playing rugby two years ago when she transferred to Marist College in the fall of 2006. When Jackson joined Marist she was looking for something that was "athletically challenging" and that would have a "strong team spirit." She tried her hand at rugby and instantly fell in love with the game.

Jackson joined the Rebels in the spring of 2007. She works as a paralegal for Raymond Raiche.
