An employee of the Nuka-Cola Corporation, she was at her workstation in the Nuka-Cola bottling plant on Saturday morning, October 23, 2077 when she heard the nuclear detonations outside. She assumed that it was some sort of military exercise and went to check. To her shock it was actually total nuclear war. Realizing that Boston was hit her thoughts went immediately to Janie, whose college was there. In her haste to find out what happened to her, she completely disregarded the evacuation protocols and abandoned the rest of her co-workers – including evacuation pair, Raul.
