Ford debuted during the December 17 edition of the CZW Dojo Wars, where she and George Gatton defeated Conor Claxton & Frankie Pickard in a tag team match.[5] She won her first CZW singles match on the December 31, defeating Dave McCall.[6] In 2015, Ford would appear in a variety of tag team matches and a few singles matches in between. She faced Brittany Blake in a singles match on the June 10 edition of the CZW Dojo Wars where Blake defeated her. At CZW Cerebral 2015, Ford wrestled a dark match won by Blake. Their rivalry continued on December 16 in a Best Two Out Of Three Falls title match for the CZW Medal Of Valor Championship. Ford was unable to capture the title from Blake during this match, closing out her second year in CZW.[7] During the course of 2016, Ford continued her steady work of tag team matches and other match specialties, picking up a small number of singles victories along the way.[8]

She finished 2016 in a match on December 7, with a loss to Jordynne Grace, an opponent she first wrestled seven months earlier in 2016 at WSU Unshakable.[9] Their rematch ended in the same result, with Grace defeating Ford.[10]
