I asked Missy how long has she trained and what got her started in MMA and this was her answer, "I actually trained Muay Thai first a few years ago in Hawkes Bay then concentrated on my kids, then I moved to Dunedin, New Zealand and both my kids started doing BJJ, my son is 15 and my daughter who trains as well she's 13. Then I decided to join them in BJJ and then soon after joined the women's kickboxing classes and as soon as I saw MMA I wanted to do it! I have been training for over a year with Team Hammerhead an just love fighting love the challenge love the rush really enjoy BJJ and grappling I have always loved it, Ive meet some amazing people trained at Tiger Muay Thai camp an just loved it." . 

Missy is the owner of a  Sports Massage Therapist & Skin Specialist salon, she is a full time worker, fighter and mother.
