Although, she is originally from Kansas City. Her career thus far has been successful. She spent 4 years with the Atlanta Falcons before joining the 49ers past two seasons. She is part of and offensive coaching staff that boosted the team’s offense to 4th overall this season.

She came out as openly gay ahead of the 2017 season. In an article from Outsports in 2017 said “The more we can create an environment that welcomes all types of people, no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, the more we can help ease the pain and burden that many carry every day”.
