Biography(references)Wood first started Muay Thai training by accident. When she was 13, her younger brother was meant to go to a class with his friend, who did not turn up. She fell in love with it and begged her mother to allow her to give up competitive swimming to do the two classes each week. She worked several jobs growing up, including one after secondary school that involved her helping children and people who were on ventilation machines, monitoring them in the hospital and assisting them when needed. But those were 12-hour shifts, which drained energy and made training difficult.
Fighter Trivia(references)Wood was previously engaged to her former coach James Doolan until 2015. She became engaged to Syndicate MMA head coach John Wood in October 2019, and the couple were married in October 2021. She took up residence in Las Vegas in March 2018, having previously lived and trained in Montreal.
