Personal life[edit]

Born in San Clemente, California, she is of Native American (Cherokee, Choctaw), Franco-Irish heritage.

On December 12, 2005, she was involved in a serious car accident resulting in severe fractures across her skull, below the brain, and behind the eyes. Due to internal bleeding in the brain, she was airlifted to a trauma center in Englewood, Colorado. On the 13th, she had surgery to relieve the pressure to her brain, and it was found that there was a fracture across the base of the skull from behind the right eye socket, and a C7 neck break was later diagnosed as a simple fracture.[7] She eventually recovered, being released on December 23, 2005 from a trauma center in Denver, Colorado to recover at home. This accident affected the filming of the science fiction movie The Villikon Chronicles: Genesis of Evil.[8]
