I am the youngest of three kids. We relocated to Indianapolis from Cleveland when I was in fourth grade. My siblings and parents either attended or are still enrolled at Bowling Green State University. We also have a Great Dane named Jaco!
I have a passion for gymnastics that hasn’t stopped since it started. In fact, I just keep working harder, and my desire to continue grows stronger. I’m a Junior competing Level 10. I’ve kept my goals at the forefront of my mind and have dreams of competing in a college program.
I started competitive gymnastics when we moved to Indiana when I was eleven and I am currently a Level 10 at Jaycie Phelps Athletic Center in Greenfield, Indiana. I also have high academic goals for myself and have been able to maintain a GPA of 3.8 while training 24hrs a week.
