Cooper and Swoopes were the first to be acknowledged as the WNBA's actual faces but it was Leslie, who was the first player to be recognized as the WNBA's official face to Backyard Basketball's target audience, which included me. Leslie was the first WNBA player I had heard of , and who enticed me into women's basketball.

My interest in the sport gradually increased from there. I remember Diana Taurasi being featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated alongside Emeka Okafor after the UConn Huskies won the national championship for both men's and women's basketball in 2004. Then I became a Sacramento Monarchs fan and watched them play in the 2006 WNBA Finals against the Detroit Shock. Since watching Parker in the 2007 national championship match, won by the Tennessee Lady Volunteers, I have been pretty tuned to women's basketball and I started writing about the WNBA in 2012.

I started working at Swish Appeal in 2013 and continue to assist in increasing the exposure of women's basketball by providing coverage. Lisa Leslie being featured in a computer game was the catalyst for the young girl growing up to be exposed to the world.
