WHEN AND WHY DID YOU START IN MMA?
I started boxing and Muay Thai when I was 14. A few years later I picked up jiu-jitsu and wrestling just for the fun of learning new disciplines. I started MMA to test myself and everything I’d learned over the years. After my first amateur fight I realized how passionate I am about fighting.

I’m currently working on my general ed at Folsom Lake Community College.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HEROES AND WHY?
My mom is my hero. She’s taught me so much just leading by example. I aspire to be the strong-willed and intelligent woman she is.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF FIGHTING?
My free time consists of taking my dog hiking and paddle boarding, spending time with my family and drawing.

I just want to inspire people. I’d love for people to think of me as a role model, even for those who aren’t fight fans.
