What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
Honestly, I’d be lying if I didn’t mention how much fun it is to constantly be throwing a party and getting to dance around all night at work…but really it’s the people. All different walks of life, from all over the world; you never know who is going to walk in that door or what is going to happen once they get a few shots in them.

What makes you a good Coyote?
I think just being myself and the fact that I love my job. Anytime you are doing something you enjoy, it will show. I love to make sure everyone around me is having a good time and my sassy attitude of course helps!

How long have you been a bartender?
In general this would be my sixth year, but I’ve been at Coyote for a little over a year now.

What do you like to do on your off time?
I love to sleep. The majority of my free time is spent catching up on sleep and resting my beat up body. I am always getting hurt somehow or another!

What is your favorite type of music?
I love all types of music but while I’m at the bar anything that puts me in a good mood or that I can dance to!

Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
It has the basis of it, but the movie just scratches the surface of what this bar actually is, while we are living the reality of it. The movie portrays the fun, the party, the stuff people want to see that makes a good movie but really this is one of the most physically, mentally and emotionally demanding jobs I’ve ever had. It can get ugly, the realness of this place, but it is always worth it. It’s like you can’t truly understand it unless you’re part of the world of Coyote.

Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
Simple: I know how to party and I’m gonna make sure to show them how to have a good time forcing them to leave all their responsibilities of reality at the door. They won’t regret it, just ask my regulars!!

Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
My best advice is always to be yourself, let your personality shine out and just have fun with it!
