Pekin, Illinois (Population 35,000 and A LOT of cows and corn)
What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
I’m able to be my loud and crazy self and people pay me for it instead of looking at me like I belong in a place with nice soft padded walls.
What makes you a good Coyote?
My ability to improvise in almost any situation that arises (and trust me, they do!)
How long have you been a bartender?
About 3 years
What do you like to do on your off time?
Ride horses, hike the Rockies, ski the Rockies, play with my puppy
What is your favorite type of music?
I didn’t really like country before I became a Coyote, but it’s grown on me to the point that it’s almost all I listen to!
Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
No, we are so much better. The movie gave a representation of Coyote Ugly, we give people the experience of Coyote Ugly. Plus, I would love to see a Coyote last 20 minutes in those high-heeled boots the characters wore on the bar
Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
I manage to entertain myself every time I work, so I’m pretty sure that I’m going to entertain you, your mom, your sister, and all of your buddies as well if you come in to see me.
Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
Just remember that there is some kind of magic at the bar. I don’t know what it is, but no matter how big of an idiot or a goofball you think you are being, everyone is going to love you and appreciate you for it. So let it loose and be as fun and loud as you want!
