She had a brief stint in the adult film industry under the alias of Risi Simms.
When asked about the adult industry, she says:
It’s vile and preys upon the young (freshly legal), the vulnerable, and the mentally ill. Thankfully the power has shifted a bit since then and women can make their own content without dealing with the industry of “companies” personally wasn’t for me but power to ya gals doing your thing! Make your own content, Own your work, and make your own rules. Sadly the backlash after you leave adult work is still there. Though it is getting much better than it was years ago!
