Born in Frederick, Maryland, a graduate from Frederick High School, Fantasia had always been active in sports throughout school and excelled in power lifting and volleyball. Fantasia started her professional wrestling training in 1992 after attending a NWA Crocket Promotions at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. She found little interest during the show until watching a women's wrestling match between Linda Dallas and Misty Blue Simmes. After meeting with professional wrestler Dusty Rhodes at the show she found herself ready to start her career as a professional wrestler. With the help of her coach, Fantasia started her pro wrestling training in nearby Hagerstown, Maryland at the Superior Pro Wrestling Training Center. After three weeks of training Fantasia continued her training with Bob Starr at the Monster Factory in Baltimore and finalized training at Larry Sharpe's school in New Jersey under Nasty Angel and Spike.
