When and why did you start training for fighting? I came across a self-defense gym, Krav Maga, around 2011 and trained while I was in college. About a year or so into training I got around to watching MMA and particularly Invicta FC. I was extremely intrigued and driven by all the women in the organization. I found myself training every day and had this gut feeling that this was the sport I was meant to pursue. Never in my life have I been so motivated, so addicted to a sport. It’s in my blood.

What ranks and titles have you held? Ranked #1 women’s pound-4-pound in Louisiana, TUF 28 contestant and finalist, IBJJF WORLDS 3rd place 

Do you have any heroes? My hero has always been my mother. Her work ethic and love is what pushes me to pursue the things I am most passionate for in life.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC is proof of my legacy. The legacy I was born with. 

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I graduated from The University of New Orleans with a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences and studies in Civil Engineering.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was attending college when I first started fighting, but was an instructor at Triumph Krav Maga through all of my college years and post as well.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? All amateur wins by KO or submission. First and only 155lbs RMMA Louisiana Champion. Undefeated in Kickboxing. Undefeated in Boxing
