Personal: Began boxing at 17 after passing a muai thai kickboxing gym in the valley in Los Angeles for weeks. She quickly became obsessed with it. She's the first person in her family of hippies to box. She moved to Marquette, Mich., to join the USOEC program in Marquette, Mich., and met her coach Al Mitchell there. She splits time between Marquette and Colorado Springs.
