Billard became a professional wrestler in the California-based Women of Wrestling (WOW) promotion. Using the name Summer, Billard was given the gimmick of a Baywatch-like lifeguard along with a tag team partner named Sandy. The duo was collectively known as The Beach Patrol.
Billard signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in December 2003 and entered their developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling. She received training from Ivory and Jacqueline. She was released after receiving an injury.
In July 2016, Billard was named part of a class action lawsuit filed against WWE which alleged that wrestlers incurred traumatic brain injuries during their tenure and that the company concealed the risks of injury. The suit is litigated by attorney Konstantine Kyros, who has been involved in a number of other lawsuits against WWE.
