Read the entire interview below:
How did you get involved with the organized fighting industry? I actually used to work at Hooters when I was around 20 and a girl I worked with there did a lot of promotional work. She had been doing ring girl for Rumble Time Promotions and they needed an extra girl to help out one night, so I said I’m in, needless to say they loved me and the rest is history.
Outside of work, are you a fan of organized fighting? Yes, most definitely. I watch fights on TV and actually have quite a few guy friends that are fighters so I used to go to the fights just to watch them. Being a ring girl has its perks though, you get to sit ring side with the up close and personal view of the sweaty/bloody action and I get paid to do so. There’s nothing better.
When did you decide to begin work in the modeling industry? I started out doing promotions before I did any modeling. I did my first shoot when I was around 22, just for fun, it wasn’t until the past few years though that I have decided to pursue it more. I think now that I’m a little older and have more experience, I’ve grown into myself and become much more comfortable in front of the camera.
What was it like to see yourself on television? Honestly, it’s awesome, but at the same time it’s very odd! I did a commercial for a bar I used to work at that aired on Fox Sports Midwest during Blues games. I had a speaking part and I always thought it was weird to hear my own voice. The fights that have been aired that show screen shots of me I still have yet to see, my boss always tells me I look great though, so I’ll take his word for it.
Over the years, have you gotten used to seeing yourself all over the place? I’m a pretty down to earth girl, so to me personally it isn’t a big deal. It’s just something I love to do. I say to myself all the time that I won’t consider myself an actual “model” until I am featured in a National magazine or get a gig with a well known bikini company. That’s my ultimate goal.
You have done a lot of work for Hustler magazine, have you had the opportunity to meet Larry Flynt? I actually did get to meet Larry Flynt a couple of weeks ago at his book signing here in St. Louis. He is a very nice and funny guy.
What led you to working with Hustler? I just want to clarify that I have not been in the actual magazine, but I have done promotional work for them and been in their Valentine’s Day Catalog back in 2011. I was approached by someone that worked for 105.7 The Point radio station (they are tied in together on this project) and asked if I wanted to do their clothing catalog. It was an awesome experience and a very long day, but I got to keep the lingerie I modeled and be on air with 105.7 twice, so it was completely worth it. The people I have met with the company are great people and it’s been a pleasure working with them.
Has there been anyone who has motivated you to keep going? My best friends and my younger sister have always supported me no matter what I have done. They are a big part of my motivation, but your biggest motivation has ALWAYS got to be yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have my off days where I question if I should continue doing what I do because of the people who do not agree with it, but at the end of the day it makes me happy and isn’t that what life is all about, being happy? I get messages a lot on Facebook saying you motivate me to work out or I enjoy looking at your pictures and to keep it up, when I get those from women that is what means the most. That keeps me going as well.
How do you draw sources of motivation when the job seems stagnant? I just remember there will always be more jobs to come. It may be a week from now or a few months from now, but something will always come. Just got to keep on pushing and pursuing your goals and dreams. I also bartend and go to school so that keeps me busy in the meantime.
You have quite a past, but what do you have planned for the future? Well, at the moment, I actually started seeing a nutritionist and am planning on seeing a strength and conditioning coach as well as a personal trainer to get more lean and tone. I would like to possibly break into the fitness modeling industry and would love to become a model for a bikini line such as Chynna Dolls, I could live in bikinis and own way too many! Maxim and Playboy have also always been big goals of mine. I’ll keep on pushing to reach my goals, we will see what the future holds.
What type of legacy do you intend to leave for the models of the future? I wouldn’t call it so much a legacy, but more advice. All I could say is do what YOU love no matter what anyone else says. Every woman is beautiful in her own way and don’t let the modeling industry tell you that you need to be a size zero or 6’2” to model. I’m curvy and love my curves. Once you start to embrace who you are, others will as well.
