I grew doing dance until the age of ten then switched to gymnastics. That’s pretty late for just starting but I excelled fairly quick and competed until level 9.

I trained at Empire Gymnastics up in the DFW area.
My favorite event was bars and my favorite skill was a giant. I also competed in high school gymnastics for 4 years.

I have a degree in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma. I covered the OU Women’s gymnastics for the schools newspaper and for Flo Gymnastics.
I was a coach at Bart Conner Gymnastics Academy for 6 years and coach the compulsory team. I also helped with the optionals when needed.
After I graduated from OU in 2017, I began a career in Journalism and have continued that. I just moved to San Antonio in December to continue my journalism career at News 4.
