What’s the most fun about your job at Coyote Ugly?

My job is amazing! How many people can say they love their job? I know I can. I work with a staff that is more to me than just co-workers… we’re family! It can’t get much better than that! What I do is rough, real and raunchy and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

What makes you a good Coyote?

I am a good Coyote because I can make anyone have a good time no matter the situation. If you haven’t had a body shot from me, then you haven’t lived. I can dance, serve you a drink, and make you laugh all within 15 seconds of meeting me AND leave you begging for more!

How long have you been a bartender?

Actually, Coyote Ugly is my first bartending job. I learned from the best, so forget the rest!

What do you like to do on your off time?

In my spare time I go to school. I’m a fulltime student majoring in marketing and advertising. When I’m not hitting the books, I’m either lying by the pool with good friends or on the mountain snowboarding.

What is your favorite type of music?

I love all types of music. My favorite band is Dave Matthews, which doesn’t fit well in our bar. Besides Dave Matthews, you can find me listening to anything I can bust a move to.

Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing?

Absolutely! After watching the movie Coyote Ugly, I knew this was my calling and then once I was offered a job I thought to myself “”I’m really a Coyote, like the ones in the movie!””

Why should a potential customer come and visit you?

A potential customer should come see me because I will make sure they have the time of their life. I can make you laugh and question yourself on why you’re still in the bar at closing time after you said “”I’m here for just a drink.”” Also, don’t be surprised if you find yourself wearing a wig and running through the obstacle courses I create on Saturday afternoons.

Do you have any advice for women who want to be a Coyote?

Be yourself! Don’t try to be someone you’re not, nobody is better than who you are. Dance like no one is watching…but in my bar all eyes will be on you!
