Growing up on the streets of New Orleans, Mardi spent her nights knocking her way through crowds on Bourbon Street and her days at the skating rink. After one too many brawls Mardi decided she needed a change. She grabbed her skates, loaded her truck and headed west. While stopped at a bar in Austin, a fight broke out. Not being one to back down from a fight, Mardi decided to help out. Thankful for the help, the Gun$ decided they needed a little “taste of Cajun” on their team. Once on the bank track Mardi knew she was home.
