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

I love getting to meet new people and see different faces each day. I also love knowing that I can come to work and have so much crazy fun with the rest of the Coyotes no matter what is going on outside of the bar.

What makes you a good Coyote?

You never know how I’m going to handle a situation so I keep people guessing… I have a unique way of handling most things that get thrown at me, which generally keeps people laughing and entertained.

How long have you been a bartender?

As long as I have been a Coyote – almost a year and a half

What do you like to do on your off time?

Take my dog Trinity for a run or to the park, bake anything sweet, spend time with good friends

What is your favorite type of music?

I have pretty eclectic tastes in music…. I like country, rock, some pop, etc. but my all time favorite band is Aerosmith.

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

Not too much… After having seen the movie people come in with the idea that each Coyote should be like a certain character from the movie and that definitely is not true…. We have Coyotes who are much outrageous than that.

Why should a potential customer come and visit you?

I can make just about anyone feel comfortable and uninhibited to act goofy and silly. I have no problem putting myself out there for a laugh, so you can’t help but want to join in on my fun!

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

This is one of the most challenging jobs I have ever had, but it is by far worth it. You will learn so much about yourself and have such an amazing time doing it that you shouldn’t hesitate to go for it!
