Biography

TRAINING: Cardio/strength-conditioning in the morning the technique & fight training in the evening. Nutrition is a huge part of making a productive training camp as well, and I eat every couple hours, all healthy and nutritious foods.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training fighting when I was 19 because I had wrestled in high school and was looking to take my ambition to the next level. What better way to do that than to get in the cage and fight your heart out?!

What ranks and titles have you held? Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion, Women's 135lb Strikeforce Tournament Champion, 2x Freestyle Cage Fighting 135lb champion, 2009 World Team Trials Silver Medalist, 2009 Freestyle Cage Fighting Super Fight Champ, 2008 Fila Worlds Grappling Championships Silver Medalist, 2008 World Team Trials National Grappling Champion, 2005 women's high school Washington state wrestling champ

Do you have any heroes? None

What does it mean for you to fight in STRIKEFORCE? For me it means I'm one of the best in the world and I'm always thankful for the opportunity that Strikeforce gives to the talented women in MMA

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I attended Central Washington University, no degree

What was your job before you started fighting? I was working at Costco

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 5-1 as an amateur
• Pro since 2007

• Seven wins by submission (triangle, Von Flue, 3 armbar, arm triangle, RNC), three by knockout

• Has fought twice in one night twice in her career, in 2007 and 2010

• Owns non-Strikeforce wins over Jan Finney and Elaina Maxwell

• Origin of nickname - People used to think I would be an easy win aka a "Cupcake." when I was up and coming, usually because of my feminine nature outside of the Octagon. It really used to bother me but now I embrace the irony of it. That, and I just love cupcakes. I live to bake!”
