“I was put in the most unusual and extreme situations and conditions and survived better than most. I was in isolated conditions where life's bare necessities were limited. While deployed to Iraq in 2003-2004, I went months with only taking bottle water showers. The supply lines were compromised so often I was forced to make a decision to either wash with my daily bottled water or consume it. I jumped from several different Military aircrafts and did drown-proofing that consisted of water survival,” she said.

Perkin’s has accrued a fan club that meets at Buffalo Wings and Rings in Mason, 5517 Kings Center Drive, on Wednesday nights as “Survivor” episodes aired this season.
