Born and raised on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Missy is energetic, charismatic, focused, driven as she is a powerful force in the ring.
Missy gives back to others as she supports people and charities strengthens the bond of a community thereby making it a better place for all to enjoy.
Missy’s volunteerism is a way of life at the center of her core essence.
After a tragedy when her close friend was assaulted inside her apartment, Missy immediately met with a trainer, educated herself, learned self-defense techniques and fell in love with Boxing.
Her trainer encouraged her to set high goals as she continuously reached each level of training. Missy’s, mother, her hero as well as her loved ones and trainers have been her inspiration as she overcame adversity throughout her life. Missy achieves her goals as she continues to make a positive difference in the lives of many meeting everyday heroes along the way.
Her motto, adapted from Paul “Bear” Bryant is simple: “It’s not the will to win that matters; everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters”, fuels her to maintain focus, both inside and outside the ring.
Missy currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
