She made her first appearance in the series in Catching Fire when Katniss asked her to fetch Hazelle Hawthorne, since her son, Gale, had been whipped by Romulus Thread. Katniss told her to make sure Gale's siblings wouldn't see him in his injured state. She offers to watch Gale's siblings while Hazelle goes to the Everdeens' home in the Victors' Village to see Gale. She is one of the few people Katniss can call a friend as she and her family lived by the Everdeens at their old house in the Seam. She had a little brother whom Mrs. Everdeen treated when he caught measles. Leevy was present when Haymitch asked a group of people to tell him times when Katniss has moved them emotionally. Leevy mentions how Katniss volunteered to take Prim's place, and Boggs and Octavia speak after Leevy.
She is described as a girl around Katniss' age with long black hair and gray eyes, typical of people of the Seam.
