What’s the most fun part of your job at Coyote Ugly?
Honestly, the most fun I have is dancing with my friends. The other Coyotes are some of my best and closest friends and the best parts of my night are when we get to be the Most ridiculous and silly whether it be miming entire songs, stage fighting, or just acting like idiots because it makes us laugh. Bonus is when people in the crowd catch us in the middle of something truly absurd and we all just start cackling.

What’s makes you a good Coyote?
I believe the reason I’ve found success as a Coyote is the fact I don’t take myself too seriously. Whenever I’m training rookies or even just talking to the crowd, I emphasize how much it doesn’t matter what everyone else thinks and if you’re having a good time, everyone else will too. Every night when I’m starting the room I give a speech about how we want the crowd to act.

“When you are in this room you are singing, dancing, screaming, and acting the fool because frankly we don’t give a shit.”

Letting go of that perceived judgment has allowed me to just be who I am and show the room they can do it too, no matter how silly.

How long have you been a bartender? 
While I’ve been a bartender outside of Coyote for about 4 years now, at the Las Vegas location I am strictly a Dancer/Emcee!

What do you like to do on your off time? 
Outside of work, cooking is my passion! I love experimenting with flavors and always measure with my heart (especially with garlic). The best thing I make is a chicken pot pie I’ve been workshopping for almost 8 years!

What is your favorite type of music? 
I am the token Goth Girl at the Las Vegas Coyote, but my heart belongs to Pop Punk!

Do you think the movie is anything like the real thing? 
ABSOLUTELY! We stay strong in our roots and we are constantly having call backs to the movie. One of my favorite memories is cutting off a guy’s ponytail and taping it to the wall on our main stage.

Why should potential customers come and visit you? 
The Las Vegas Coyote Ugly is a nonstop SHOW. You can come in 7 days in a row, plenty of people do, and you will have a completely different experience every single night. The possibilities are endless when you come to our bar and it will be a time you will never forget. 

Do you have any advice for women that want to be a Coyote? 
The most important part of being a Coyote is being unapologetically yourself. Coyote Ugly is so special because no two women are the same. We thrive on our individuality and our confidence in who we are. Don’t try to be what you think a Coyote should be because Your flavor is someone’s favorite flavor, and that’s all that matters.
