What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?
The most fun part about my job as a Coyote is allowing, not only other women who are customers, but even new Coyote cubs feel confident within themselves while dancing on our bar! I also have a newfound love for bartending thanks to this job!

What makes you a good Coyote?
What makes me a good Coyote is not being afraid to be my most authentic self but also having fun and living in the moment! Definitely don’t think too hard about what you are doing, because others can sense and see that. I know because I can be guilty of it, but time flies and you and your customers enjoy time best when you’re having fun and living in the moment!

How long have you been a bartender?
A year and 4 months!

What do you like to do on your off time?
I like going out with my friends, checking out live music, singing karaoke, exploring, and of course sleeping!

What is your favorite type of music?
Alternative/Emo/Pop Punk/Rock

Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?
I think the real thing definitely still honors the movie in a way, but the real thing has adapted to today’s day in age, especially because of covid, and kids back then are oddly adults now but it is definitely still the place to be and especially the best place to dance on a bar!

Why should a potential customer come and visit you?
ALL potential customers should come visit me and my girls because we are such a diverse group in race, ethnicity and body type but we all love each other, and it shows. We know how to have a good time, and we want to make sure other people in our bar feel the same kind of welcoming and diversity as we always show them! Men can’t get on the bar? No problem! Let’s play a game on the floor once the drinks are poured 😉

Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?
My advice for women wanting to be Coyotes would be that this is definitely, without a doubt, a hard job. But if you are willing to stay motivated, work hard, and put in the effort to push and better yourself and your skills while you’re here, it’s makes your job 10x more fun and easier as the days go on. Now there are days where things will still be hard, but when the energy and the vibes are good and everyone is having a great time, it makes your job that much more rewarding.
