5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT EMILEE PRINCE
WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START IN MMA?
I loved martial arts from the get go. At the martial arts school that was the only place I ever wanted to be growing up. When I went away to college my freshman year was the first time since I was six that I did not train and learn martial arts in some way. I felt a very large part of me was missing. So, that summer when I came home on break I tried KMAA for the first time and I was in love all over again. At that time I would train as a way to cope with the stress of nursing school/life in general and even after graduating it continued to be a healthy outlet for me.
WHAT WAS YOUR CAREER BEFORE FIGHTING? DO YOU STILL MAINTAIN THAT JOB?
I was an orthopedic medical surgical nurse. July of this past year I felt called to pause my nursing career in order to pursue MMA full time and full heartedly.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HEROS AND WHY?
Florence Nightingale. She was a woman who was intelligent and brave. She was an advocate of health and founder of modern nursing.
