Here's something interesting... At Chattanooga State, Curtis played for head coach Beth Keylon-Randolph. After transferring to Memphis, Curtis' new squad would later go head-to-head with her former coach during the 2013 season after Keylon-Randolph became head coach at East Carolina. In a three-game series that the Pirates swept, the former coach had her former player's number as Curtis reached base only twice, picking up one base hit and taking a base on balls.
Some advice for young players of today: "Always show up 15 minutes early; to workouts, practice, and warm-ups for games. Show up early. It will be noticed by your coaches and your teammates."
What's she up to now? Since her playing career ended, Curtis has gone back to school to obtain her Master's degree in athletic training, with the goal of continuing her education at physician's assistant school to become a PA and athletic trainer for a college or professional sports teams. As with many ex-athletes, she is also a coach and participant in CrossFit.
