Early LifeEdit

Emily is the daughter of a Kenyan father, Mises, and white American mother, Billie, which both of them are educators. She is the youngest of four children. Emily got her interest of wrestling from watching it so much as a child.

Wrestling CareerEdit

After training in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), Emily would make her WWE debut on June 7, 2010 where her, along with Caitlyn Evans, Ashley Miller and Brianna Lloyd had started an attack on the Divas match of the night, which was Kelly Kelly verses Tori Brooks. They were later joined by Vanessa Bennett, Alexis Rosser and Samantha Reeves.

On the June 14 edition of Raw, it was revealed by Vanessa that they would be known as Nexus 2.0, where they are all a younger sister of a member of The Nexus, who had formed just moments prior to Nexus 2.0 forming. It was also stated that Nexus 2.0's goal was to take over the Divas Division.

After that, each member of Nexus 2.0 had won their match against their respectful opponents in either singles competition, tag team competition and most of the time handicap matches (where it would be four members of Nexus 2.0 against just one opponent).

Despite having a new leader in Tori Brooks, Emily had stayed with Nexus 2.0 until their disbandment on August 29, 2011.

Emily now competes on WWE Superstars as a face

Personal LifeEdit

On September 4, 2011, Emily had gotten a tattoo on the inside of her upper arm that said, Love everyone. Hate no one.
