Hometown: Flagstaff, Arizona, but I’ve lived in Colorado for over 13 years.
What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
I absolutely love to perform for a crowd. I have the most fun when I’m able to sing and dance for a packed bar. I also love working with all my fellow Coyotes, who are all such strong, confident, and talented women and be able to call them all great friends.
What makes you a good Coyote?
I’m a good Coyote because I always bring a positive attitude, high energy, and an outgoing personality to every shift. If I’m not pouring a drink, I’m dancing on the bar or singing a song.
How long have you been a bartender?
I have been bartending for a little over five years. I’ve been a Coyote for over three.
What do you like to do on your off time?
If I’m not working at Coyote Ugly, I’m either working at my day job as a chiropractic assistant, volunteering at the University of Colorado Hospital, volunteering for Yoga Bear (a non-profit that places cancer survivors with free yoga classes), or filling out medical school applications. I also love to sing and write music, hike and experience the outdoors, run and workout, and sew and make clothing.
What is your favorite type of music?
I like all types of music. My favorite type of music changes with my mood. Some days I love hip-hop or classic rock. Other days all I want to hear is ’80s. However, when it comes to singing and dancing, I definitely have preferences. I love dancing to rock, pop, and hip-hop and I love singing pop, R & B, and country.
Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
The movie was a love story. The real thing is in-your-face sassy, uncensored, confident women who will make you laugh your head off, pour you a perfect drink, and melt your heart all while dancing, singing, and looking good doing it.
Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
Whether you come and visit me at four o’clock in the afternoon or at midnight, you’ll always be entertained. I’m a great conversationalist and can relate to anyone. If the bar is rocking and we can’t get a chance to chat, I’ll entertain you by singing, dancing, and just being goofy.
Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
You have to be willing to live outside the box and be able to adapt to situations easily and multitask. Great dance ability and good looks can only get you so far. It’s the confident, quick witted, high-energy women who aren’t afraid to be themselves that get noticed.
