A high school superstar, Guidry as a junior scored 43 points in the Texas state meet and placed second in the team standings. She transferred schools as a senior, lost her eligibility, and competed as an open athlete, making the long jump finals at the USA Champs and the World University Games. The long jump was her best event as a prep, but by 1990 knee problems forced her out of the event. Nicknamed Ms. Turbo, Guidry took the NCAA by storm when she won the 55 and LJ, ran on the winning 4x400 relay and took 2nd in 200 at NCAA Indoors as a Texas freshman. Formerly married to Mon White, Guidry earned her degree in sociology in 1991. She is currently working on getting a license in massage therapy. She plans to eventually open a women's spa and health center. With former teammates Cynthea Rhodes and Tamela Saldana, she has founded the Athletic Achievement and Development Academy, which concentrates on developing the academic, professional, and athletic skills of area athletes from ages 8-18. Workshops and summer camps that help build skills and show positive role models. She trains with Michelle Freeman, Olympic 400mH champ Deon Hemmings, Sandie Richards, Angie Vaughn, Toya Brown, and Rhodes.
