By 2015, her career took off:
In May of 2015, Blackheart made her in-ring wrestling debut for local California promotion, Alternative Wrestling Show. In her first match, she defeated Brittany Wonder, a multi-time Best Athlete in the East Bay Champion in her own right. From there, Blackheart wrestled for other locations in the area, including Gold Rush Pro Wrestling.
Blackheart kicked off 2016 strong, debuting for East Bay Pro Wrestling and defeating Beatrice Domino in February. By March, she competed in a five-way match to determine the first EBPW Ladies Championship; ultimately, Samara came out on top. Blackheart went on to fight for titles in California, and after several months, her hard work paid off. In September, Blackheart beat Samara for the EBPW Ladies Championship, winning her first title in the process. She would hold onto the title throughout the year.
Her appearances in promotions such as SHIMMER and RISE Wrestling helped Blackheart continue to build her name throughout the independent circuit.
Aimed for gold:

In March, she won the Phoenix of RISE Championship, which she successfully defended against the likes of Veda Scott and future AEWstar Britt Baker.

Though she started her career in California, she was becoming a more prominent name not just in the country but around the world.

Blackheart responded: “Whatever bud no judgment here. Welcome to the toilet elite!”
