1. How did you get your start, who trained you? 
I started at a local federation in Southeastern Massachusetts. I went to the school, tried out, and once I made the cut, I started training shortly after. My trainer at the time was Brickhouse Baker. Since then I have trained with my brother and Jose Perez.

2. What was your first match or appearance, and how did you feel? 
My first match was against Amanda Storm. I was extremely nervous but once I was out there I was fine. I think the feeling you get for the first time is indescribable. Its an amazing rush that keeps you coming back and wanting more.

3. Who were some of your influences in the past, or who do you admire today?
I totally admire and consider Molly Holly a big influence in my wrestling career. I have learned a lot from April Hunter who is a very hard worker. I also looked up to Chyna and Lita at some point. 

4. What is the hardest part about being a woman in a male dominated business? 
The drama and or politics which come along with it...and getting passed the T&A part of wrestling. It is part of the whole entertainment but I hate when fans will chant "HLA" or "Puppies" when girls are standing out there nearly killing each other.

5. What are your goals in wrestling? 
To wrestle in as many places as Possible. To hopefully become internationally known as a talented female wrestler. And last but not least.., to stay myself in a business that has come to change many people. 

6. What was your most embarrassing moment in wrestling?
When I tripped when I was running away from Simon Diamond. Funny thing is no one noticed it but just my close friends did. I just slipped and fell but it looked like I was trying really hard to stop when I saw Simon. 

7. What are you most proud of so far in your career? 
I think anytime I make people smile. I was happy to work for CRUSH which was a remake of Crush. I was also very proud to be a competitor in the WXW's Girl's Super 8. 

8. What other female talents do you think highly of in the business? 
There are a couple I think very highly of including April Hunter who gets better every time you see her. Sumie Sakai is one ball of fire! Phoenix is overall just amazing both on the mic and in the ring. 

9. If you weren't in wrestling, what would you be doing today? 
Honestly, I can't see myself not in the business anymore. Ever since I was 16 I made wrestling one of my # 1 priorities which is why I can't see myself not in the business anymore. I'd probably be focusing on other things more, if I wasn't wrestling.

10. Is there anything you would like to say to the fans reading this article? 
Thank you very much for all the support. It is very much appreciate it. I have said it before and I will say it again, you guys are the fuel that keeps wrestlers going. And no matter what happens, go and follow your dreams... "If you can dream it...You can become it" Thank you for letting me entertain you guys as I am already living out a dream of mine. Take Care.
