When I was 16 I started modeling…it was more of a hobby than anything. When I was 18, I sent in photos to agencies and began working immediately. My first job modeling was with a real estate infomercial. It was a lot of fun and I got bit by the modeling bug.
I was contacted by a lot of the modeling agencies locally and one thing led to another.
At first most of my gigs were swimwear shoots. I finally got a break when FORD motor company asked me to do modeling for them full time. Next was TV. I appeared on the Carson Daly show, the Nick and Jessica Variety show, and the WB Morning show. Furthermore, I was in an independent movie called "Vegas, Baby" with Chuck Liddell. When I built up my resume I wasn’t sure where I wanted my career to go, and then the UFC® was introduced to me.
It was my second time working as a Octagon girl™ at a boxing match and the press took my photo and posted it on an MMA website. James Pena (trainer with UFC®) approached me and told me the UFC® was looking for a new Octagon Girl™ and would I try out. Of course, my answer was yes and I gave him my card and received an email immediately from the company. I went in for an interview and have been with UFC® ever since. Time flies by, and this is the most fun I’ve ever had.
