When and why did you start boxing:
I was 28 and going through a divorce. They opened a little karate gym in my neighborhood and my sister encouraged me to go give it a shot because I had no life- all I did was work. I had my first fight within 3 weeks of starting and I won. I finally found something I’m good at.
What is something you’re most proud of yourself for:
My daughter, Annie, is my greatest accomplishment. I made a good, honest, inquisitive, exploratory little human who loves art and music and all things that challenge her. She will be a great addition to the next generation of strong fearless women.
How do you unwind:
Wine and best friends
