What is she known for? Chiles was an all-star outfielder for four years for the Lady Vols, culminating in an all-American award in 2007, her senior season. That same year, she led the SEC with a .466 batting average and fifty-six runs scored. She earned SEC Player of the Year honors that year, as well. In 2016, Chiles was named an SEC Legend of the Game.

Here's something interesting... India is one of seven children who, from oldest to youngest, span a difference of twenty-one years.

Quotable quote: “Practice makes perfect. It's really a simple truth. You want to strive for perfection in a relationship, on a job, or on a team, [and] you keep practicing your butt off until you get there. I don't believe anyone is perfect, which means you keep practicing!”

What's she up to now? India currently works for Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a Johnson & Johnson company. After spending some time as an RN specializing in neonatal intensive care, she transferred from the care-giving side of healthcare to the administrative side in pharmaceutical sales. In addition to her "day job", India runs SlapperNation, a training and coaching company that puts on various events and has already produced its first instructional DVD within the company's first six months of existence.
