How did you get into the world of MMA?
-I have been a huge fan of the sport for about 8 years now, but it was 2007 when I had my Ring Girl debut for professional boxing – Fight Night at the Tank. A year later in 2008 I began working as a Ring Girl with Strikeforce. I then went on to work with Shark Fights, which lead to my Fighters Only World MMA Awards Ring Girl of the Year Nomination in 2010.

-My fans are the best, so encouraging and always supportive!! I love when a parent brings their daughter up to take a picture and tells me what an inspiration and great role model I am. That’s the best feeling in the world! Others saying it was so good meeting you today!! You’re such a down to earth person!! See you tomorrow at the Expo again!! :) She's the smartest, Prettiest, sexiest and strongest ring girl alive.
