Professional wrestling career
Early career (2006–2009)
After receiving her training at the Supreme Pro Wrestling Training Academy in her hometown of Sacramento, Von Eerie made her professional wrestling debut in 2006 and started working for various professional wrestling promotions on the West Coast, most notably Pro Wrestling Revolution (PWR), Insane Wrestling League (IWL), Xtreme Pro Wrestling (XPW) and Alternative Wrestling Show (AWS), where she held the promotion's Women's Championship on two separate occasions.
Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (2009–2010)
Von Eerie made her debut for Southern California–based Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) on September 4, 2009, at Guerre Sans Frontières, in a match, where she was defeated by Candice LeRae. She returned to the promotion on January 30, 2010, at Kurt Russellreunion, where she competed in an eight-person tag team match, where she, Ryan Taylor and the Cutler Brothers (Brandon and Dustin) defeated Candice LeRae, Jerome Robinson, Johnny Goodtime and Malachi Jackson. At the following event on February 27, Von Eerie and the Cutler Brothers were defeated in a six-person tag team match by Brandon Bonham, Candice LeRae and Joey Ryan. After working her first three matches in PWG as a heel, Von Eerie turned face for her fourth match on April 10, when she was defeated by Joey Ryan in an intergender match. Von Eerie returned to the promotion on June 11, being defeated by LeRae in a singles match for the second time in her PWG career.
Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (2010)
On March 5, 2010, Von Eerie made her debut for Mexican professional wrestling promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), as a member of the villainous alliance La Legión Extranjera (the Foreign Legion). In her first match in the promotion, Von Eerie and her Legión stable mate Sexy Star defeated Faby and Mari Apache. On March 12, at Rey de Reyes, Von Eerie, Sexy Star and Rain were defeated by the Apaches and Cynthia Moreno in a six-woman tag team match.
After spending three months away from AAA, Von Eerie returned as a regular on June 20, replacing Rain as the third woman in La Legión Extranjera and entering into a feud with the Apache sisters, during which she regularly teamed with her stable mates Sexy Star and Jennifer Blade. On July 2 Von Eerie and her Legión stablemate Alex Koslov defeated Faby Apache and Aero Star to win the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship. This started a storyline, where Koslov fell in love with Von Eerie, who, however, didn't share his emotions. On July 29 Von Eerie and Blade defeated the Apaches in a lumberjack strap match. On August 14 at Verano de Escandalo Von Eerie, Koslov and Sexy Star faced the Apaches and Aero Star in a match, where both Von Eerie's and Koslov's World Mixed Tag Team Championship and Sexy Star's Reina de Reinas Championship were on the line. The match ended with Mari Apache pinning Sexy Star, which meant that she lost her title, while Von Eerie and Koslov kept theirs. At the following major event, Héroes Inmortales IV on October 1, Von Eerie and Koslov lost the World Mixed Tag Team Championship to Faby Apache and her new tag team partner Pimpinela Escarlata, in Koslov's final appearance for AAA before leaving for World Wrestling Entertainment.
