Team Tuesday: Kat & Angie

Sure you’ve heard of prosciutto, but have you heard of Prosciutto Babes? The duo behind the name are two competitors from Seattle and San Francisco looking for a challenge outdoors amongst a group of badass women, and if dumplings and French fries are served (along with prosciutto of course) – even better! Please welcome in today’s Team Tuesday #122 Angie Wight and Kat Salvo!

Angie is an anesthesiologist based in San Francisco who loves to head out on an adventure whenever the opportunity arises. Kat works in operations in the video games industry and shares Angie’s passion for exploring – and the Pacific Northwest provides the perfect opportunity.

Along with Kat’s 4Runner Appa, the Prosciutto Babes are stoked to head into their first Rebelle in less than three weeks. Let’s give them a warm welcome – and then read more about the duo below!

Hometown/Current town:

Kat: Houston, TX/Seattle, WA
Angie: Davis, CA/San Francisco CA

Favorite food: 

Kat: Dumplings
Angie: French fries

Something only your best friend knows about you:

Kat: Sometimes I sing nonsensical songs to myself while I’m concentrating, and I genuinely don’t realize I’m doing it until someone calls it out. So Angie has that to look forward to, I guess.
Angie: When in medical school and deciding on a specialty, I briefly considered neonatology (newborn critical care) in addition to anesthesia. I joke that the only thing they have in common is that the patients don’t talk!

Favorite place ever:

Kat: The itty bitty cabin we rent every Memorial Day on Orcas Island, WA.
Angie: Patagonia.

Why did you pick the vehicle you’re competing in?

Kat: I love my 4Runner too much to consider competing in anything else! His name is Appa, and he’s the magical flying bison who takes us on all our adventures. (big Avatar the Last Airbender fans)
Angie: I’ve always loved Toyotas and think that they are super well engineered, but more importantly, Appa is kitted out and ready for action!

Why the Rebelle?

Kat: In part, because Burning Man was canceled, and we desperately needed another desert shenanigan! But mostly, because it seems like a wild opportunity to learn a new & challenging skill, while adventuring in the company of a ton of incredibly badass women.
Angie: I wanted to do something that scares me a little bit, and that challenges me to think and work in a completely different way.

Any shout-outs you’d like to make now that you have our attention?

Kat: I’d actually like to second the shout out to our husbands for being so beyond supportive. We’re two super lucky ladies.
Angie: This might sound lame, but I’d like to thank our husbands, who have both been super supportive and helpful in this adventure.
