When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in early 2020. I started training because I decided to not continue playing college ball, so I moved home and started just for fitness purposes to stay in shape. But being in the gym and growing my skill set led me to start fighting because I missed competing. I’ve always competed in sports as a kid. 

What ranks and titles have you held? Amateur MMA belt for GCMMA, Amateur FRC national Muay Thai belt 

Do you have any heroes? My mother 

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means everything to fight in the UFC. It will change my life financially. It will prove to many people and to myself that a girl from a small town can accomplish anything.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended McNeese State University on a softball scholarship but only stayed for two years and moved back home. I do not have a college degree. 

What was your job before you started fighting? I worked and currently work at a local baker in Lafayette.
