What does being a juggalette mean to you?
I love being a Juggalette because it means I can be me and be around people who I love and enjoy the same things I do.
Being a Juggalette to me means having family all over the world. I live in Southern Indiana and work in Louisville Kentucky but since I have my Juggalo Family I have met from all over the US online and at the Gathering, I can be at home in STL, Virginia, PA, Maine, Kansas, Iowa, all over. Special shout out to my family at PGT, Shady Crew and Juggalo News.
What do you do for a living?
I am a Paralegal for a Senior Partner in Downtown Louisville Kentucky. We handle Insurance Defense and Liability Civil Cases and are a large Trial Attorney Law Firm. I was just recently nominated for the Professional Who’s Who of Paralegals for 2016.
I also sell Younique makeup on the side because I love all natural products, and I enjoy doing makeup and hair (especially yarn braids) for myself and my friends before shows. I can’t wear the regular stuff because it breaks me out, but now I can paint up with everyone else if I want too!
What made you decide to become a paralegal?
My husband helped me go back to school when I was 20. I was working at McDonald’s then. He worked 60 hour weeks in a factory to pay bills so I could go back. I had always loved to read and write, and as a Juggalo, I had experienced some bullshit from the law by the age of 20. I wanted to know how it worked and it seemed to come natural for me. I graduated with a Paralegal Studies degree with a 4.0 and was Valedictorian of my class in 2005. I have been a Paralegal for going on 12 years now.
I love to read. I love Harry Potter and Legos and anything Vampire related.
Favorite gathering memory?
My favorite Gathering memory is all of them from 2009 forward. When PGT came together was also special to me, because I’ve made some lifetime friends there.
Most recently, my favorite Gathering memory was watching my 14 year old son at his first Gathering this year launching Faygo with the clowns for the final song and of course seeing Wizard of the Hood!
If you were a superhero what name and powers would you have?
I’d technically pick being a Vampire so I can be Immortal, Super Fast, Fly and all that good stuff. I’m used to my name by now, so I think I’d stick with that.
You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with your elephant?
I’d be worried about liability. This damn elephant is liable to get me sued with all the shit it’s going to step on and break.
